THE COOPERSTOWN CRIER
Mayor Joe Booan appointed Charles Hage to the board of trustees to fill the vacancy created when he was elected mayor.
There are two years remaining on Booan’s term. Hage will serve until March 31, 2011. Who serves the last year will be determined in next March’s election.
Hage is the father of Eric Hage, who completed his first three-year term on the board in March, but did not seek re-election.
``I want to thank the mayor and board of trustees for putting their trust in me. I hope to make a positive contribution to the community,’’ he said.
Booan appointed Hage to chair the Village Gateway Technical Committee. Other committee members include Joe Middleton of Bassett Healthcare and former NYS Assemblyman Tony Casale.
Hage is a former Director, Corporate Business Development, for Eastman Kodak Company in Rochester and a consultant in business development to high tech startup companies. He is currently a member of the management team of Mohican Financial Management in Cooperstown.
