Bertoni Honored for 12 Years in Office as Endicott’s Mayor


In recognition of Mayor John Bertoni’s 12 years of service to the Village of Endicott, the Board of Trustees hosted an open house reception in early December.

Local dignitaries, Endicott residents, village staff and partners from local media outlets attended to celebrate the service of the longtime mayor, whose political service to the village began in 1980 when he was elected as a trustee. His career in public service also includes 10 years as supervisor for the Town of Union and three years on the Union-Endicott School Board. 

Deputy Broome County Executive Kevin McManus was in attendance to proclaim on behalf of Jason Garnar, that December 10 was Mayor John Bertoni Day in Broome County.

In March, Bertoni announced he wanted to focus on his retirement and would not seek a fourth term as mayor. In November, Linda Jackson was elected to succeed Bertoni beginning in January 2020.
