Tonawanda News — Andres said his family’s ties to politics were part of his initial interest in running for elected office. His grandfather, Ed Pawenski, was the supervisor of the early version of the Niagara County Legislature before becoming one of the founding members of Niagara County Community College. His father was a North Tonawanda police officer and his brother is a member of the county sheriff’s department.
“North Tonawanda is my home, it’s where I’ve chosen to raise my family and I look forward to the new challenge of fighting for NT in the county Legislature,” he said.Contact reporter Michael Regan at 693-1000, ext. 4115.
