NewsChannel 9 was the first to report that Dan Queri is the pick to become the next New York State Fair Director, but not everybody is on board.
State Senator John DeFrancisco would prefer it to be Troy Waffner, the current person running the fair as acting director. Waffner’s been in the job since the spot was vacated in 2013.
DeFrancisco says, “If someone other than Troy is named, I would be unhappy because I think the man deserved the job and he did well at it.”
The State Senator has shared his support of Waffner with Governor Cuomo for many years, and hopes the governor reconsiders before making an official announcement.
