FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
It is with great sadness that the Rensselaer County Minority Office announces the passing of Deputy Minority Leader Ed Manny earlier today.
A County Legislator since 2010, representing the City of Troy (District One), Ed was fully dedicated to the betterment of our community. Ed used to say: “The citizens of Troy and Rensselaer County deserve a legislator, who will serve the needs of our community and not themselves”, said Legislator Cindy Doran.
Ed served on the Judiciary and Public Safety Committee, Rules and Legislative Operations Committee and sat in on all meetings of the Budget and Finance Committee. He was also a member of the Rensselaer County (RC) Agricultural and Farmland Protection Board, the RC Emergency Radio Communications Committee and the RC Fire Advisory Board. Ed also served as Chairman of the Soil and Water Conservation Board and was a past member of the Environmental Committee.
“As a retired Troy Firefighter with 28 years of dedicated service, he was always quick to volunteer and help anyone in need” said Legislator Mark Fleming.
Ed was a proud, dedicated and lifelong resident of the City of Troy. He was a member of the Friends of 112th Street and Director of the Friends of St. Patrick’s and a 36 year member and President of the Troy Flag Day Parade. “The City of Troy has lost a son”, said Minority Leader Peter Grimm.
“He was not only our colleague in the Legislature, but also our friend and will be greatly missed. Our thoughts and prayers go out to his wife Martha and the entire Manny family during this difficult time” said Grimm.
