Trustee Art Devlin was elected to his first four-year term on the Village Board in March 2009. He was born in Lake Placid and is a lifelong resident. After graduating from Lake Placid High School he attended Ithaca College for a year then finished his education and graduated from Plattsburgh State with a BS degree in business.
Devlin grew up and worked in the family motel business. He and his wife Sue bought out Art's father in 1992 preventing the family business from being sold to a developer that was going to turn the property into a strip mall. Since that time, he and his wife have been rebuilding and growing the family business.
Prior to taking over the family business, Devlin worked for Adirondack Flying Service from 1980-1991 flying scenics, acting as a flight instructor and a charter pilot. He served on the Lake Placid Visitors Bureau for two terms under Jim McKenna, and since 1996 has also been a volunteer at Uihlein nursing home.
