Fulton legislator builds web site to assist public

by Carol Thompson

Oswego County Legislator Dan Farfaglia is hoping his new web site will assist the public in finding everything they may want to know about the county.

“In a nutshell, this is a site that is designed to make it easier for residents of Oswego County to be able to identify all of their elected officials from town council members all the way to their federally elected representatives,” Farfaglia said.

The site went public yesterday, although it’s still a work in progress.

The web site also includes a list of past members of the State Assembly, State Senate and members of Congress, along with photos and biographies, when available.

“All of these previous officeholders in those lists have represented Oswego County at some point and the years that they did is what’s listed,” Farfaglia said.

As an example, he said, Bob Oaks has been a member of the Assembly since 1993, however in the list, it states 2003 because that’s when he first began representing Hannibal, Oswego Town and Minetto.

The current county legislative maps will also be added to the web site and will be included in the municipality pages along with city council districts for the cities of Fulton and Oswego.

“The page that is empty is the one titled Old Maps. That is going to include old Assembly, State Senate and Congressional Maps so that residents can see the changes that their area went through during the past two centuries,” Farfaglia said.

“I will also attempt to include the county legislative districts from 1990s so that way residents can see for themselves the changes since they went from 36 seats to 25.”

This site as it is now is custom designed for this fall’s elections, Farfaglia noted.
