Andes Town Supervisor, Martin A. Donnelly (Marty), announced today that he will run for re-election in November after serving ten consecutive years in that position. Mr. Donnelly stated, “I am proud to lead Andes, a model American community that has maintained a balance of the old historic environment with the new and needed infrastructure updates.”

Andes has been favorably written about in many publications such as the New Yorker, Country Living, and the New York Times. Local resident Lew Kolar was quoted at a recent gathering supporting Marty, “He has repeatedly proven that he is a master diplomat.” At the same gathering long-time resident Bill Piervincenzi stated “Donnelly uses his long experience with federal, state and local contacts which have given him meaningful access to the funding required by the Town. This has included new roads, sewers, school projects, and parks. Being Supervisor is a tough job and a big one. Marty is a true professional who has demonstrated repeatedly that he is up to the task.”

Marty, as he is known to everybody in Andes, has run an insurance business in the town since 1982. He is currently serving as Chairman of the Republican Committee of Delaware County. He also serves as Chairman of the Delaware County Mental Health Committee, Finance Committee, and Capital Projects Committee. He is a member of the Catskill Watershed Corporation (CWC) Board of Directors, and serves on the CWC Education Committee, Finance Committee, and is Chairman of the CWC Economic Development Committee. He has been happily married to his wife Yvonne for 49 years. They have five children: Martin, Michael, Steven, Margaret, and Ellen. Ellen attended and graduated from Andes Central School in 1992. ~
