The New Year means a new mayor for Williamsville.

7 Eyewitness News sat down with Deputy Mayor Dan DeLano and he tells us that politics isn’t the only thing keeping him busy.

DeLano says he enjoys performing music on stage.

"I played with just about everybody in this town. Took a couple of shots, came pretty close to hitting, if you want to call it the big time," said DeLano.

When the deputy mayor isn’t playing music, he’s spending time with his 18 and 21 year old sons.

Justin Moore: "How do you find the time for all of this, the music, the city, the village and kids and stuff." DeLano: "I manage my time very well. I set aside a decent amount of time every day for the village."

DeLano, 51, has been in politics for about 10 years. He played a key role in blocking Williamsville from dissolving into Amherst back in 2010, which sparked his political career.

DeLano’s current term lasts until next June, when a special election will take place. He says he plans to throw his hat in the ring to stay in the job for as long as the voters let him.
