The Warren County Conservative Committee has recommended the Glens Falls Common Council choose Bennet Driscoll to fill the vacant Glens Falls 5th Ward supervisor post.

The supervisor position was left vacant when Matthew MacDonald resigned for reasons related to his full-time job. MacDonald recommended Robert Stedman, an independent, to fill the spot.

Driscoll is a former Glens Falls Common Council member and Warren County Planning Board member who unsuccessfully ran against MacDonald on the Conservative and Democratic lines. 

"Bennet Driscoll undoubtedly has the ethics and expertise to serve as Ward 5 supervisor," the Conservative Committee wrote in a press release. "His past service to the City of Glens Falls Common Council and various city boards speaks volumes of his character and achievements."

Glens Falls Mayor Dan Hall said the council will interview candidates later this month.
