COLUMBUS – The Town of Columbus is a small country community and its supervisor says the only way to promote the area is to increase public awareness and government transparency.
Columbus Town Supervisor George Coates added that he only plays a role in the local municipality and that his Columbus Town Board deserves most of the credit.
“I’ve been so incredibly fortunate in that I’ve always had an outstanding group of people support me and the community. You must be very thankful for your board’s support in getting anything done and I’ve been lucky so far,” said Coates.
Coates is unopposed on the ballot this November, and so are all the other seats in the Town of Columbus, including a two-year term for Town Clerk with incumbent Brenda L. Weidman seeking reelection. Also, incumbent Town Council members Kavin E. Winton and Bruce E. Vermeulen along with Superintendent of Highways Kevin D. Cross are all seeking four-year terms in their respective positions.
