In his current role, Wessels is responsible for providing essential services for the elderly population of the county including the Home Delivered Meals Program, personal care aide service, Medicare counseling and enrollment, housing assistance, transportation, and other outreach services.

As an advocate for Chenango County’s aging population, Wessels has built and nurtured strong relationships with state lawmakers and other representatives in the State Capital to ensure much needed resources continue to be allocated to Chenango County residents.

“My decision to run for Chenango County Clerk is because I am committed to serving our County with renewed energy and a vision for the future for many years to come,” he said. “I will be available to meet with residents throughout our county over the next several months, through election day, and beyond. It is important to me to hear your questions, comments and concerns.”
