Gates Supervisor Mark Assini will be taking on the job of Chief Administrative Officer at American Rock Salt Company, operators of the nation's largest salt mine near Geneseo.
Assini has previously announced that he's stepping down as Town Supervisor to go back to the private sector. He decided to get out of politics after deciding not to make a fourth run for Congress, a decision he reached when the Conservative Party nominated Dr. Jim Maxwell for the seat this year.
Assini will step down as Gates Supervisor next month. Steve Tucciarello has already announced he's a candidate for the Republican nomination.
