Tonawanda Dems dump Boyle for Smilinich


Tonawanda News — Little said they have not entered into a binding agreement with the seller of the house, which is in Hamburg and not officially on the market. 

The Third and Fourth Ward were less complicated for the committee. It endorsed incumbent Richard Slisz and newcomer Jenna Koch, who hopes to replace current Councilman Tyler Kossow, who will not run due to job obligations.

On the Republican side, Chuck Gilbert, a former one-term councilman and candidate for the state Assembly, will compete for the First Ward seat. 

In the Second Ward, newcomer Jon Juliano has thrown his hat in the ring. Juliano, who works at an accounts receivable company, has argued for change on the council. 

“I believe some of our current council members don’t share those far-reaching views ... we have a lot of stale ideas, and we need someone new and fresh to bring families and businesses back to Tonawanda,” he said.

As of last month, the Republican Committee has not chosen a candidate for the Third Ward race, and chair Christine Pilozzi did not return calls Wednesday to comment on the process.

Brian Jopp has won the Republican endorsement for the Fourth Ward race. He owns a local video productions business, Ghostline Entertainment, and is another political newcomer.
