Attention Town of Amherst residents, your new supervisor-elect would like to have a conversation with you.

Hours after winning the right to lead Erie County’s second most populous municipality, Brian J. Kulpa was brimming with ideas and enthusiasm for incorporating residents’ input into the town’s future.

“I want to create real, grassroots-driven planning efforts,” he said Wednesday in his downtown office at architecture and planning firm Clark Patterson Lee.

A half-hour interview offered a glimpse of specifics and some insight into his vision for the town of 126,000 residents, now that he was handed a victory in Tuesday’s election by a 52-48 percent margin.

With Kulpa moving up, who will be new Williamsville mayor?

Now that Brian J. Kulpa has been elected Amherst town supervisor, who will take over as mayor of the Village of Williamsville?

Kulpa on Wednesday said he plans to submit his resignation in December, and his departure will be Dec. 31.

After the New Year, the Village Board’s four trustees would select a new mayor — either from among themselves or another village resident.

That person would serve for six months, until June, when a special election would be held for the remaining year in Kulpa’s term. The new mayor would then have to run again in June 2019 for a full four-year term.
