Failing To Sign Oath, Wilber Must Be Appointed By Board

Failing To Sign Oath, Wilber

Must Be Appointed By Board

Dan Wilber

COOPERSTOWN – Missing the deadline to sign his oath of office, county Rep. Dan Wilber’s election to a second term representing District 10 – Edmeston, Burlington, Exeter and Plainfield — is in doubt.

His erstwhile colleagues on the Otsego County Board of Representatives must now vote to reappoint Wilber to his former seat for him to continue serving.  The board’s Administrative Committee approved such a resolution at today’s meeting, which must be acted on by the full board when it meets Wednesday, May 2.

It was not immediately clear if Wilber will have enough support for that to happen, or if another candidate will emerge for the job.
