Brant to unveil Wall of Fame
It was announced at the town board’s June 12 meeting that the first entrant on the Wall of Fame will be former Supervisor Herman J. Ciminesi, who held the position for 18 consecutive years, the longest tenure in the history of the town.
“I want to give these people the opportunity to be recognized,” said Supervisor Leonard Pero. “They deserve to be honored and I want to give them that chance. Mr. Ciminesi dedicated 25 years of his life to public service, 18 of those as supervisor, and he deserves to be recognized for his dedication and loyalty to this town.”
The town board read a proclamation honoring Ciminesi, which read “the Brant Town Board and the citizens applaud you for all of your achievements and forever thank you for all of your devoted years of service that you unselfishly gave to honor our community.”
The board also named June 15, 16 and 17 in the Town of Brant as ‘Herman J. Ciminsei Days.’
“There are many individuals in our community throughout the years that have dedicated their time to make Brant a better place to live and a better community overall,” Pero said. “They should be recognized for what they have done. If we start something to honor these individuals now, then future residents of the town will know what they were able to accomplish in their time here.”
A plaque will be hung in the town hall commemorating Ciminesi and his dedication to the town over the years. The town also plans on adding more residents to the Wall of Fame annually.
