The appointments, announced Wednesday, include: Chuck C. Thorpe, senior vice president at Clarkson University; Ernest J. LaBaff, president emeritus at Aluminum, Brick and Glass Workers International union; Assemblywoman Addie J. Russell, D-Theresa; John Burke, a retired employee of the psychiatric center; Jonathan Putney, St. Lawrence County Legislature chairman; Joseph Lightfoot, St. Lawrence County legislator; and Sam Burns, St. Lawrence County Legislator.
