Afton voters have choice for supervisor

AFTON – For the first time in 24 years, Town of Afton voters will have a choice of candidates to lead them locally and to represent them in Chenango County decision-making.

Town Councilman John H. Lawrence, who is a Republican, and political newcomer and Democrat April M. Leggett will face off in the general election on Nov. 8. Leggett is also running as an independent under the “Vision for Afton” platform.



Veteran Afton Supervisor Robert B. Briggs, who is retiring, never faced opposition in an election. He said Monday that he is leaving the town debt free and in good financial shape.

“As good as any in the county and better than some,” he said.

Upon announcing his retirement, the 82-year-old former dairy farmer endorsed Lawrence for the job.
