continued “Dick taught me a lot, especially about all the paperwork you have to do,” said Lamica. “He was the town assessor for about 30 years, too, so he was really good at paperwork.”
The strong work ethic and reliability of his current crew of six employees is also something Lamica credits for making things run efficiently for the town and in making his job easier.
“We’ve got a really good crew. We work well together and if I ever ask for them to do something, they do it,” said Lamica. “I’ve got to hand it to them.”
Lamica, who was appointed to the position of highway superintendent earlier this summer, will be on the ballot this November as the Democratic candidate seeking to complete the remainder of Lewis’ term, which was set to expire Dec. 31, 2013. Lamica is running unopposed for the position.
Prior to his service with the town highway department, Lamica worked as a technician for the local John Deere dealer in Plattsburgh for eight years. Before that, he worked with the Town of Malone Highway Department for 13 years.
