New councilman named in Golf Manor

        GOLF MANOR — Frank Hessler, 41, a nine-year resident of the community, has been named to Village Council to fill the unexpired term of veteran Councilwoman Ethel Mitzman, who stepped down last month for health reasons.

        “A neighbor of mine, Don Burke, was appointed to council and approached me and told me there was an opening and asked if I was interested in it. I agreed basically because I might make a difference,” said Mr. Hessler, senior draftsman, project coordinator and network administrator for THP Ltd., a structural engineering firm downtown.

        “We are going to miss Ethel, who served council for 25 great years, and we are delighted to have Frank on board,” Mayor Dennis Puthoff said. “Frank is a resident of our community for some years, a homeowner, and we welcome him and his ideas.”

        Mr. Hessler said he has been assigned to the public utilities, environment and Census 2000 committees of council. “This is my first time ever in an elected public office so I'm just learning how things work,” he said.

        In compliance with the vil lage charter, Mr. Hessler was chosen by council members Sharon Chachoff and Akan Zaffiro, whom Mrs. Mitzman designated to choose her successor.

        Mrs. Mitzman, 69, resigned in April. She was elected to a four-year term in 1998 — her seventh consecutive election to council. She ran for mayor and lost by three votes to former Mayor Donna Faulk in 1995.
