MALONE — Mayor Andrea Dumas has joined the office of Dan Stec, R-Queensbury, as a community liaison.
According to Stec’s Director of Communications Daniel Mac Entee, the position of community liaison helps the state senator connect to his constituents.
“The role is to interact with the public at events and meetings, to represent the senator and to get information on what is going on in the community,” Mac Entee said.
According to Mac Entee, when Betty Little, R-Queensbury, represented the 45th senate district, Paul Maroun, mayor of Tupper Lake, worked in a similar capacity.
“When Dan was elected senator he wanted someone from the area to serve in a similar capacity,” Mac Entee said, “He got to know Andrea last year and was impressed by her attitude and energy.”
A press release from Stec’s office cited Dumas’ current role as a Franklin County Legislator and past work as a Malone Village trustee.
“Andrea’s enthusiasm for public service makes her an ideal fit for this important role, she knows the region well and I’m very glad to have her on my legislative team,” Stec said in a press release, “I know she’ll do a great job at meetings and events and when talking with constituents about their concerns and needs.”
Dumas said she was excited to join Stec’s team.
“I am very pleased Senator Stec has asked me to assist him by serving as a community liaison. I am passionate about local government service, and there’s always more to learn,” Dumas said in a news release, “I am very excited for this opportunity to gain a new perspective and to help Senator Stec serve the families and businesses of the 45th District.”
