Hailing from Salina, New York, Town Supervisor Nick Paro was inspired to run for office by his grandfather, who was the vice president of the local school board, and his stepfather, with whom he often discussed current events and politics. His favorite thing about being a town supervisor is the opportunity to bring new life to the town where he grew up.

The biggest lesson Paro has learned during his time in office is the importance of communicating with other legislators and his constituents. Three words that he would say capture his town are "neighborhood, community, and grit." 

If Paro could have lunch with any elected official, he would choose John F. Kennedy. If he could visit anywhere in the world, he would go to Paros, Greece.
