FRANKFORT – A new supervisor has been elected for the town of Frankfort after the previous town supervisor, Joseph Kinney, resigned in September.
Democrat Glenn Asnoe has won the unofficial vote with 902 votes, and his Republican opponent John Wallace received 714 votes. Wallace currently serves as the deputy town supervisor for Frankfort, and he took over the duties of supervisor when Kinney resigned.
Kinney’s resignation came at the end of September when an audit by the New York State Comptroller’s Office found that Kinney hadn’t maintained accounting records since 2013, and he hadn’t remitted the required financial reports to the town board or comptroller’s office.
At that time, the comptroller’s office recommended that Kinney perform the required duties or resign from the position.
