The Sunday Buffalo News looks at the electoral races across Niagara County and the uncontested races faced by the newest leaders of Royalton and Hartland.

The article makes note that Jennifer Bieber will be Royalton's first female supervisor:

Royalton’s Jennifer H. Bieber is backed by the Republican, Democratic, Conservative and Independence parties. She has served as Supervisor Richard J. Lang’s deputy for three of her past four years on the Town Board. Lang has served as town supervisor for the past four years but declined to seek a third term in office.

Bieber, 41, is a facility assistant for Verizon, where she has worked for 21 years.

About her new, two-year post, she said, “I love it. I’ve lived here my whole life and I love our town. This is a way of giving back to the community. I think it’s good to be involved and I like the problem-solving. It’s very exciting.”

The article also notes that Hartland will see a change of leadership, from father to son...

In neighboring Hartland, William R. “Ross” Annable will succeed his father, William A. “Bill” Annable as supervisor for the next four years, in what should be a smooth transition. Ross Annable carries the backing of the Republican, Conservative and Independence parties. He has served as deputy town supervisor for the past year and was unopposed in his bid for a four-year term on the Town Board two years ago. His father has served as town supervisor since 1978.

Annable, 54, is retired from the Niagara County Sheriff’s Office and is police chief of Barker.

“I’ve lived in Hartland a long time and our family has roots here,” he said. “I’ve spent a lot of time seeing how the town is run. It’s a great place to live and I want to continue those traditions we have here.
