Donna Schiener - Mayor

I have lived within the village since July of 1984 with my husband Wally, and daughters Colby and Jaycie. I have always been active within the community with a focus on youth while my children were young as well as promoting local commerce and village activities and festivals. I was employed by Arcade Dental Arts for 19 years and for the past 27 years have been a real estate appraiser in the capacities of an Appraiser’s Assistant, Licensed and now Certified Residential Appraiser.

I was one of the directors for a youth basketball league for 10 years, planned and chaired the Arcade Winterfest for 8 years and was on the Arcade’s Fabulous 50’s Festival committee for 7 years. I am currently on the Revitalize Arcade Committee, an organization focused upon the growth and success of the Village of Arcade. I am currently a member of the Tri County Kiwanis Club of WNY and one of the Founders and board members Arcade Area Community Theatre (AACT). This theatre group was established for the sole purpose of raising funds for non-profit groups and charities as well a providing cultural events within this rural area.

Always aspiring for a better community, I became a Village Trustee in 2009. My passion has always been to create and promote a community that is resident and visitor friendly with adequate pedestrian facilities, increased commerce, and extra-curricular events to showcase the historical, safe and fulfilling lifestyle of a small town. Over the past eleven years, I have been committed to the responsibility of budgetary concerns within our government as well as providing quality services to our residents. I was instrumental in upgrading the playground at the park, as I feel young families are the future of this great community.

One of my favorite quotes is from Eleanor Roosevelt, “I could not at any age be content to take my place in a corner by the fireside and look on.” As you can assume, sitting has never been one of my favorite pastimes!
