Waterloo Supervisor Lisa Hochadel says she will not seek re-election this fall after careful consideration.
The decision was not an easy one, nor one that came quickly – but the Supervisor alerted media Monday morning that she wouldn’t be pursuing another term on the Board of Supervisors.
Hochadel was elected in 2017 to a two-year term on the Board of Supervisors representing the Town of Waterloo in an at-large seat.
The Town of Waterloo has two at-large seats, which do not fall under Town leadership – the way the Town Supervisor does along with Town Board members.
Hochadel was one of the last remaining hold-outs, who didn’t have clear plans for the upcoming election. She was elected as a Democrat, but began the process of changing her party affiliation at the end of 2018.
In an email she said her private practice, and new career opportunities ultimately led her to the decision to not seek another term on the Board.
