Town trustees Victor Garcia and John Cava began their new terms on the Cicero Town Board on Tuesday, May 14. Winners of the February municipal elections, the two trustees will serve four-year terms alongside Town President Larry Dominick and the Town of Cicero Board, Clerk Maria Punzo-Arias, Supervisor Joe Virruso, Assessor Emilio “Emo” Cundari, Collector Fran Reitz, and trustees Bob Porod, and Larry Banks.
Punzo-Arias administered the oath of office as the rest of the board looked on. For Garcia, he continues his service on the board, the longest-serving of the four trustees. For Cava, he begins his first full term.
“I am thankful for the opportunity to continue to serve the town and the people who have put their trust in me,” Garcia said. “The weight of responsibility doesn’t lessen as I continue to serve, but instead intensifies as I try to help Cicero continue to flourish.”
Cava also expressed gratitude for the voters to give him four more years on the board. His family, as well as Garcia’s, watched as the two men took the oath of office and received warm congratulations from the rest of the board.
“This is one of the greatest opportunities I have to represent my neighbors and friends in maintaining a safe and vibrant community,” Cava said.
