SMYRNA – The Smyrna Town Board swiftly and unanimously appointed local businessman Michael Khoury, a Republican, to fill the position of supervisor after the unexpected departure of Supervisor James Bays two weeks ago.
Khoury, 54, is a self-employed packaging broker for the printing industry. He ran for and was elected last spring to the Sherburne-Earlville School District Board of Education.
“It's a real privilege to be appointed to the position of town supervisor, replacing Jim Bays who has served our community so well for so many years. I look forward to working with the Smyrna Town Board along with our friends and neighbors to ensure that Smyrna remains a great place to live, work and raise a family,” Khoury said in a statement.
