Dan Mahaney has announced his intention to seek another term as highway superintendent for the Town of Hannibal.
Mahaney’s mission has been to improve the safety of the town’s 56 miles of highways, while staying within the limits of a strict budget during tough economic times and obtaining grants to help offset taxpayer expense.
Mahaney said that for the past few years he has had the opportunity to work with an excellent highway team: rebuilding, resurfacing and improving the drainage of all the town roads.
“We have come a long way, but it’s a never ending process with Central New York’s weather conditions,” he said.
Before becoming highway superintendent, Mahaney was a councilor for seven years and also served as deputy town supervisor. He served as liaison between the Highway Department and Town Board.
He served many years on the Oswego County Solid Waste Management Advisory Board and also has prior experience as chairman of the town Planning Board.
He has attended the Cornell Local Roads Highway School for nine consecutive years, has intensive training in emergency management, has more than 30 years of mechanical and electrical maintenance experience and served as a union steward for Local 43.
Dan and his wife of 39 years are both lifelong residents of Hannibal. They participate in many school and community functions and enjoy donating their time to help local organizations.
“I would be honored to serve the people of Hannibal for another term,” Mahaney stated.
