penfield town supervisor resigns
Tuesday, Feb. 7, 2023 -- Penfield Town Supervisor Marie Cinti announced today that she has resigned so she can continue to care for an ill family member.
We are very sorry to see her leave office. Marie was a much-needed change to Penfield town government. She enthusiastically engaged with the Penfield community and was open to hearing different perspectives and ideas from any resident. She addressed some difficult Town issues from before her tenure with competence, grace, and candor.
We respect Marie and thank her for her dedication and commitment to Penfield. We understand and support her in her focus on her family and wish her only the best.
We hope the Penfield town government will fully embrace and carry forward Marie's openness to fresh, diverse ideas and transparency, demonstrating those valuable traits in all they do.
