Dave Seeley will serve as the Town of Irondequoit's interim supervisor.
The Irondequoit Town Board selected Seeley for the job during its meeting last night and will officially appoint him to the position during a special meeting at 6 p.m. on Monday, April 18, at Irondequoit Town Hall, 1280 Titus Avenue. Seeley, a Democrat, has been an Irondequoit Town Board member since 2014, and was one of four residents that the board interviewed for the supervisor job.
If Seeley wants to stay in the job past the end of the year, though, he'll have to run for it in the November election,
The supervisor seat became vacant when Governor Andrew Cuomo appointed Democrat Adam Bello to the empty county clerk seat. That seat was vacant because Republican Cheryl Dinolfo, who had served as clerk since 2004, was elected county executive.
Seeley's elevation will now leave an empty seat on the Irondequoit Town Board.
