SUPERVISORS OF THE TOWN OF NISKAYUNA, 1809 TO DATE


"It is the assigned lot of a town supervisor to move peripatetically from place to place, event to event, some planned, many unplanned, some happily ceremonial, others of sufficient gravity to require a high degree of leadership ranging, at minimum, from empathetic presence, to, at maximum, overt involvement aimed at restoration of stability." -Ed Reilly 7/28/1995
