GREENE – In the Town of Greene, residents will be casting their ballots to fill the position of supervisor as well as two town council seats.
For the town’s top spot, Supervisor Jack Cook is running unopposed for what will be his third two-year term in office.
There will be more competition for the vacancies on the town council, where four candidates, including the incumbent Republicans Joe Henninge and Josh Browning, will be battling it out for two slots.
Councilman Joe Henninge will be trying to retain the position he was elected to four years ago.
In addition to his time on the town board, Henninge served for 10 years on the Village of Greene Planning Board and on the board of directors for the Labor Day Picnic Association. A lifelong resident of Greene, Henninge has spent 35 years with the Greene Fire Department, serving in a variety of leadership positions including fire chief. He has also spent 11 years as a volunteer with the Greene Emergency Squad.
Some of the accomplishments of which Henninge said he is most proud include his time working on the town’s Personnel committee and his involvement with creating a comprehensive plan for the municipality.
He is also proud of what the town has accomplished during his tenure on the board. “We have restored our highways after suffering 2 major flood incidents,” he explained, as well as developed and maintained a website which allows residents access to town officials and relevant town information.
