Columbus Has Two Choices For Town Supervisor

COLUMBUS – The Town of Columbus has been without a voice in Chenango County government since the resignation of the former supervisor in February, but on Tuesday voters will have two candidates to choose from.

Sara Paddock is a New Berlin native who has lived in Columbus since 1978. Running with the Independent Party, Paddock said she wants the local government to be more youth and elderly oriented. She also hopes to limit town spending and said she’ll be looking to lower taxes.

“My main concern is the safety of everyone and making Columbus a better place for our elderly and kids. I don’t think the town has had enough emphasis on kids. They’re going to be our future so we need to help get them more involved,” said Paddock.

Paddock worked for Madison Insurance for four and a half years in New Berlin before the business closed in 2009. Currently she is taking online college courses at Everest University in Florida. Paddock reported this would be her first time serving in public office if elected, and said she would treat the opportunity as a learning experience.

Pamela Weidman is one of 10 siblings and raised six of her own children on a Morris farm before opening a South New Berlin business in 1990, the Southtown Diner. She also spent more than 15 years in the livestock auction business in Oneonta and has worked for MeadWestvaco in Sidney.

She has served as the Town’s Deputy Clerk for the last six years and her sister, Brenda Weidman is the current Town Clerk.
