Senator Helming Visits

On Wednesday, October 2, Senator Pam Helming (R-54th District) visited the Town Offices in Willard to take a tour and discuss thoughts about attracting residents and visitors to the hamlet. She met with Sue Ellen Balluff, Tom Bouchard, and Bill Karlsen of the Planning Board, and Joe Brodnicki and Mike Joslyn of the Town Board.

Although her time was very limited she had the opportunity to take a brief tour of the hamlet including Hadley Hall on the Willard grounds. She was impressed by the potential opportunities for the area.

During her tenure, Senator Helming has been very involved and supportive of the Town of Romulus as well as all of the towns and villages in Seneca County.
