LEWISBORO, N.Y. The Lewisboro Republican Town Committee has unanimously endorsed Janet Donohue as its candidate for town clerk in the November general elections.
Donohue is currently serving in the position having been appointed by the town board upon the retirement of longtime Town Clerk Kathy Cory-Andreasen. Previously, Donohue served four years as deputy town clerk. Appointed to the town clerk position in March, Donohue is required by law to run for the unexpired term.
Cory-Andreasen, who recently married and moved to Litchfield County, Connecticut after serving for nearly 30 years as town clerk, had recommended Donohue to the town board as her replacement.
"You get a great sense of a person when you work side-by-side with them for four years, she said. I was confident in Janet's capabilities when I first hired her. She has proven herself to be extremely capable every day since.
Andrea Rendo, chair of the Lewisboro Republican Town Committee, said Cory- Andreasens recommendation along with the hands-on training the former clerk gave to her deputy were the major factors in the committee's unanimous support.
"It was easy to see Janet was the most qualified and best choice to fill the position," Rendo said.
Donohue said she was honored to have the support of the committee.
I am up for the challenge, she said. Im very excited to be nominated by the GOP and will do my best to follow in Kathys (Cory- Andreasen) footsteps.
