John S. Dolce, owner of Town Line Self-Storage in Greenville, N.Y., is seeking election as town supervisor in Rensselaerville, N.Y., after stepping into the post last December. He replaced supervisor Steven Pfleging, who was charged with grand larceny for allegedly stealing more than $13,000 from the town. Dolce, a Democrat, is running for the seat unopposed and is endorsed by the Democratic, Republican, Conservative and Independence parties, according to the source.
Dolce, a local entrepreneur, also owns Town Line Auto, a vehicle-repair shop, and Town Line Motorsports, a dealership specializing in motorcycles and all-terrain vehicles. He recently acquired the former Shepard Farm in Westerlo, N.Y., and installed two large solar arrays, the source reported.
Dolce first joined the town council in 2016 by appointment and was later elected to the seat the same year. He resigned his council position when appointed as a deputy supervisor. When he was sworn in as supervisor in January, he indicated he wasn’t sure if he’d run for election, choosing to take the appointment to ensure continuity of leadership. “In the past, a lot of people have abandoned the town,” he told the source.
Town Line Self-Storage opened in 2010. The facility at 6501 Route 32 offers traditional, drive-up units and outdoor vehicle storage. It serves Southern Albany and Greene counties.
