Stanek, Floyd named to Park Commission

LAKE GEORGE Joe Stanek of Diamond Point and David G. Floyd of Huletts Landing have been appointed as members of the Lake George Park Commission, the agency announced this week. Gov. David Paterson nominated the two and the state Senate confirmed the appointments Aug. 8. Mr. Stanek replaces Roger H. Phinney whose nine-year term expired March 31, 2007. Members of the Commission serve without compensation. Stanek retired in 2004 following a 36-year career in management and technology, much of it with the Xerox Corporation. Since moving to Diamond Point, he has been an active volunteer for the West Brook Conservation Initiative and other environmental projects, agency chairman Bruce Young said. Joe has really immersed himself in the efforts to protect Lake George, he said. His helpful approach and keen attention will be most welcome to our organization. Young also offered compliments for Floyd. Daves experience in business and volunteer organizations will be a great help in the difficult problems we confront, Young said. Floyd is a long-time resident of the lake and has been active in lake-protection organizations. Floyd retired from corporate management in 1999 and became a director of The Fund for Lake George that year. He is owner-operator of the Fort Ti Ferry and his family has been involved with Lake George for over 100 years.
