“Regarding my candidacy for re-election again, since I got elected to the town board, I’ve tried to work smart for residents of our town. I  feel I have the work record to prove I’ve kept these folks in mind while serving as councilman,” Scherz said. “I know there is more work to be done and I embrace the opportunity to do so.”

Scherz has earned endorsements from the Conservative, Independence, and Republican parties. 

“I want to thank the political parties that endorsed me, the volunteers that carried my designating petitions for me, and all the people that signed my designating petitions, helping me get on the ballot again,” he said.

Since being elected to the Verona Town Board, Scherz has created the Fred Scherz Sr. Memorial Scholarship for Volunteer Community Service and awarded over $2,000 in scholarships to graduates from the Town of Verona. He has also hosted seven holiday parties for town residents and six “thank you” dinners for town veterans.

In 2013, Scherz was one of eight honorees to win a Follow the Leader Award from Leadership Mohawk Valley. Since then Scherz has served as President of the Oneida County Association of Towns. In 2014 Scherz was inducted into the Vernon-Verona-Sherrill High School Wall of Fame.

“I believe my 21-plus years of work experience in government, work ethic, sense of community, determination and willingness to continue working with members of various political parties makes me an ideal candidate for re-election as councilman on the Verona Town Board,” Scherz said. “I’m hopeful residents of the Town of Verona will give me the opportunity to continue serving them, as I would be honored to do so.”
