For the first time in some resident’s lives, the city of Hornell has a new mayor. John Buckley was sworn in Saturday in front of a packed crowd at the old courthouse in city offices.
Buckley says he has big shoes to fill, after succeeding Shawn Hogan. Hogan was the Hornell mayor for 32 years, and Buckley served as city alderman and deputy mayor under his predecessor.
Buckley’s first day on the job is Tuesday.
