Brochey Undecided About Running for Reelection,
Lewiston Supervisor May Run for Highway Superintendent

April 14, 2015

Will Brochey run? And for what office?

First term Lewiston Supervisor Dennis Brochey told the Niagara Falls Reporter he is considering options concerning his future political career.
"I have three or four opportunities," he said when asked if he would seek reelection as town supervisor.

"The finances here are in pretty good shape," Brochey said, referring to his work on the Lewiston budget. "I could leave today and be proud of the work I did to straighten out the budget."

Brochey, a Democrat, defeated Republican Ernie Palmer in 2012 and entered the world of politics after years as a private businessman in Lewiston.

Brochey said he might run for the seat that retiring Bill Ross currently occupies on the county legislature.

"As, a part time position, I can collect social security and make the same amount of money as I do now as supervisor," Brochey said.

He makes about $42,000 as Town Supervisor.

Brochey said he was also considering another elected position and should he win he would voluntarily reduce the pay for that position.

"I'm seriously considering running for highway superintendant," he said. "The position pays $70,000 - the highest salary for any elected highway superintendent in the county.

 If I win, I will cut my salary to $55,000.0022.

If he runs and if he were to be elected highway superintendent, Brochey said he would work for a balanced budget, to make the best use of funds, put his emphasis on addressing drainage issues and improved leaf pickup in the fall.

"If I run against Doug (Janese) and lose than I will retire from politics altogether. I can tell you my wife wants me to retire and she can tell when she listens to me talk that I don't want to retire," he said.

The Brocheys recently bought a second home in Las Vegas with a view of mountains in the back and perched as it is, a view of the Vegas strip in the front.

"My wife would like for me to retire and move to Las Vegas. I won't rule it out. Whether I run for supervisor, superintendant, county legislator or retire, I can't honestly tell you today. I got two months, no, about a month and a half to decide."

But there are signs that Brochey has on some level already made up his mind.

He returns again and again to the topic of his work as supervisor and discusses his many plans, few of which would see a culmination before his term ends this year.

"I have so much work to be done in Lewiston," he said," and I think I can do much more."
