LOCKPORT― At the legislative meeting Thursday, Niagara County Legislator Rebecca Wydysh became the first Republican woman to be appointed as vice chair of the county legislature. Wydysh succeeds Clyde Burmaster, who passed away in August after a lengthy illness.

Wydysh, who represents Wheatfield and Lewiston, expressed gratitude toward her colleagues for their recognition of her efforts across the county.

“I am grateful to my fellow legislators for the faith they have shown in my ability to not only represent my constituency effectively, but to be a leader in policy initiatives and implementation in Niagara County,” said Wydysh.

Legislature Chairman Keith McNall, who represents Lockport, believes that Wydysh will do an exceptional job as vice-chairwoman.

“Legislator Wydysh is a passionate advocate for the community, and has taken the lead on a multitude of initiatives, including the fight against the opioid crisis,” said McNall, R-Lockport. “I am looking forward to working with Becky as we continue to strive to make Niagara County an even better place.”
