Lanning and Jones win Skaneateles village election

— “I did about all I could do. I ran a hard race. I thought I did a good job on the board this year,” he said.

Cromp said he is most proud of the work he did as committee co-chair in revamping the parking law, which addressed the contentious issue of the parking waiver fee in the village. He said he was looking forward to finishing the work on renovating the old Fennell Street fire station and moving village hall to the building.

In response to that comment, Jones said, “It’s rare that I would dare to speak for the mayor, but in this case I feel confident that John will be appointed a citizen member of the fire station committee.”

Cromp said he did not what is future plans would be after he leaves the board next month. “Good luck to the new board,” he said.

Lanning said he is looking forward to working with Mayor Marty Hubbard and other members of the board.

“I have a lot to learn at the village level, but some jobs like village trustee you can only learn by doing them,” Lanning said.

Lanning said he will continue to hold his seat on the town Zoning Appeals Board.

Lanning will be sworn in as the newest trustee, and 10-year-incumbent Jones sworn in for what she has said will be her final term of office, at the April 2 village board reorganizational meeting. Shortly after that, at the April 12 board meeting, the trustees will present the tentative village budget.
