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.
