Lee Welles Makes History—in Corning, NY

Lee Welles, author of the Gaia Girls book series, will soon be making history as the first woman to serve as deputy mayor of the city of Corning, NY.

From the Leader:

Councilman Lee Welles, D-2, will soon become the first woman to serve as city deputy mayor, pending a rubber stamp approval.

Republican mayor-elect Rich Negri recently chose Welles to fill the post.

The council will vote on the issue at 7 p.m. Jan. 4 at City Hall, during its first monthly meeting of 2010.

Negri, who vowed non-partisanship during his campaign, said Welles, a Democrat, will do an excellent job.

“She is my choice,” Negri said. “Lee is going to make a very good deputy mayor, she is non-partisan and bases all or her decisions on the facts of the situation and her personal thoughts on the matter.”

Negri said he recently sent letters to all council members and to City Manager Mark Ryckman informing them of his recommendation.

“It was a pleasant surprise,” said Welles, who will be starting her third year in office in January. “I often tell people that on a local level we just shouldn’t do party politics. We need to do what we think is best for the city.”
