NORWICH – Chenango County Board of Supervisors Chairman Richard B. Decker, the Republican supervisor from North Norwich since 1994, will not seek re-election in November.
The long-held rumor was confirmed late last week when Decker, who has been county chairman since 1997, did not meet the July 14 deadline for filing a designating petition for a Republican Party government seat.
He could not be reached for comment this morning.
Robert E. Wansor, a North Norwich chiropractor, filed his Republican Party petition to run for the vacant town supervisor’s seat. Democrats caucus to select their candidates, as do the Republicans in the towns of German, Lincklaen, Otselic, Pharsalia and Pitcher. Caucuses must be held by Sept. 23, which is the last day to accept or deny a nomination.
