Republican Bill Faro of Inlet is running for a third term on the Inlet Town Council in next Tuesday’s primary race.
As an over 20-year resident of Inlet, Faro has a long record of service to the citizens of the town as a business owner and volunteer.
He and his wife Lynn operated the Last Waltz Café and Cinema (currently the Tamarack Café and Movie House) from 1989 – 1995, and have operated Woodholme Cottages on Seventh Lake since 1997.
He has been an active member of Inlet Volunteer Emergency Services for 20 years, serving as president from 2001 to 2009. He is a driver and EMT for the Inlet Ambulance Squad.
As member of the Hamilton County Republican Committee, he and Lynn have hosted fundraising events at their home for State Representative Teresa Sayward and Senator Betty Little.
Bill was elected to the Inlet Town Board in 2003, and has previously served on the Inlet Youth Commission Board as well as the Planning Board.
As a member of the Hamilton County Industrial Development Agency he has assisted local business owners in securing loans for improvements to their businesses.
He regularly volunteers at area annual events including the Black Fly Challenge Bike Race, the 90-Miler Canoe Classic Race, the Inlet Sled Dog Races, the Gary Rudd Memorial Golf Tournament, as well as the upcoming One Square Mile of Hope canoe and kayak event.
Bill says he is proud of the accomplishments the Inlet Board has made in the past few years.
“It’s all about team work, and we all have worked well together for the betterment of our community,” he said.
He cites the Main Street grant, which helped refurbish the face of the town; the current sewer project; and the Elaine Townsend Trail, an extension of the TOBIE Trail as notable projects during his terms in office.
“I enjoy serving the town and have the time and energy to help get things done. I look forward to the opportunity to continue my work on the board and would appreciate the continued support of the voters in the primary and general election,” Bill said.
Bill has also registered as an independent and regardless of the outcome of the primary, his name will appear on the ballot on November 8 under the Howl of the Wolf Party.
