Paul Zimmermann, Gowanda

GOWANDA — Paul Zimmermann has announced his candidacy for a two-year term as trustee in the Gowanda village elections on Tuesday.

He has served on the board since April 2012 and currently is co-commissioner of the Gowanda Fire Department. He has served as deputy mayor and has been chairman of the Thatcher Brook Task Force since 2012, working with the U. S. Army Corps of Engineers, New York State Department of Environmental Conservation and neighboring townships on a Flood Risk Management plan.

Zimmermann is a 1985 graduate of Gowanda Central School and attended Rochester Institute of Technology. He is a technical sales representative for Superior Printing Ink Co. He has been a village resident for 17 years and has two children, Kyle and Emma, both students in the Gowanda Central School district. He is a member of St. Joseph’s Church and past president of its Parents’ Association. He also belongs to the Collins and Perrysburg Conservation Clubs.

He says he wants to continue the positive direction the village is headed, citing infrastructure improvements like street paving, new sidewalks, blight removal, new parking facilities in the business district, and upcoming improvements to the village’s reservoir, water lines and wastewater treatment plant.

Zimmermann is running on the Open Door Party line. Polls are open from noon to 9 p.m. at the village hall, 27 E. Main St.
