COOPERSTOWN – Mayor Jeff Katz said this morning he plans to name Richard Sternberg, the recently retired Bassett Hospital orthopedic physician, to the Village Board vacancy created by the resignation of Joan Nicols.
Rich currently serves on the Village of Cooperstown Planning Board and ran for Town of Otsego Town Board in November. “His strong showing within the village was important to me as I thought about who to pick for Joan’s spot,” said the mayor.
He plans to swear in Sternberg at the start of the trustees’ December meeting at 6:30 p.m. Monday, Dec. 21. Click here to review the questionnaire Sternberg responded to when running for town board.
