No major changes coming in Richmond as Town Supervisor goes to court

It’s complicated, but nothing major is going to change in the coming weeks.

At least not until the Richmond Town Board has more information.

Last week Richmond Town Supervisor Nathan Van Bortel was charged with fifth-degree criminal possession of stolen property — a Class A misdemeanor. He is accused of possessing business records from his previous employer, the Canandaigua National Bank and Trust Co., which he did not have permission to possess.

Van Bortel worked for CNB for more than 10 years. According to the Canandaigua Messenger, Van Bortel left CNB in February.

Officials have not clarified the circumstances surrounding his exit or the charges against him. His next appearance in court is scheduled for Wednesday at 8:30 am in the City of Canandaigua.

Van Bortel defeated longtime supervisor Ralph Angelo by a significant margin — more than doubling up Angelo’s vote count.

The Town Board decided that until Van Bortel’s legal fight is resolved — he will not handle any Town matters concerning CNB.

In a statement to the Canandaigua Messenger, Deputy Supervisor Daryl Marshall said that the board would continue monitoring the situation over the next several weeks.
