Wayne Horning was appointed last year as a member of the Chittenango Village Board of Trustees after the election of Dep. Mayor Ronny Goeler to the village's top seat left an empty chair at the table.
This year, Horning is running unopposed and under his own steam.
Here's a little bit about Chittenango's newest trustee.
Name: Wayne Horning
Street Name/Neighborhood: Hearthstone Village
Family: Wife Diane, daughters Amanda and Wendy
Employer/job title: Madison Cortland ARC Sales and Marketing Manager
What has been the biggest surprise since being appointed? The amount of input people in the community have offered.
Most proud of: My family
Most rewarding: My many years of coaching for the Sullivan Community Council and seeing what fine adults the kids have become.
Why do you want to run? I have been involved in the community for over 20 years. I care about how the Village evolves in the future and I feel I can help to move things in the right direction. People should be involved in their community.
