Clint Nagel of Creek Road in the town of Arkwright is announcing his intention to seek the position of Arkwright Town Councilman in the coming elections. He is seeking the Republican nomination in the Primary Election that will be held Sept. 10.
Nagel is running with incumbent Councilman Larry Ball for the seat being vacated by Councilman Randy Schafer. Acknowledging that he is a political novice, never having ran or held public office, he is proud to have the endorsement of the Republican Committee and is working hard to meet as many people as possible before the primary. He also sought and was successful in obtaining the endorsements of the Chautauqua County Conservative and Independence Parties.
Nagel said, "I am proud of the support that I have obtained and feel this demonstrates that I have the values that are important to the residents of the Town of Arkwright."
He said he looked forward to the coming elections and the opportunity to serve Arkwright residents.
Clint and his wife, MaryAnn, and family have been residents of the town of Arkwright for the past twenty years. He grew up in Holland, where he graduated from Holland Central School. He worked for Fisher Price for many years and recently retired from Ford Motor Company after 30-plus years of service. While at Ford Motor Company he served as an alternate committee person for the union, as well as on the safety and absenteeism panel. He presently works part-time for a private cleaning company.
During the coming campaign Nagel said, "He would work to meet as many people as possible since it feels that it is important to listen to the concerns of Arkwright residents." During his working career he said he always focused on his family and his employment but felt now in retirement that he now has the time and would like to work for the benefit of Arkwright residents. Acknowledging that he is not a politician he believes he can listen to residents and do what is right for them.
