Villages elections are March 19
Thursday March 14, 2013 | By:CHRISTOPHER GORDON | News
For the first time, the North Collins mayoral seat will be for four years in a year when local village elections will be uncontested.
This year there will be elections in the Villages of North Collins, Blasdell, Farnham and Angola on Tuesday, March 19.
Long-time Mayor Vincent George will seek another term on the board, but for the first time, he will seek a four-year term.
Joining George in the Village of North Collins race is another prominent name in the community, as former Town Supervisor Thomas O’Boyle is seeking a one-year term on the village board which was previously held by Jen Alessi, who resigned in December.
Both races are uncontested.
Three current people serving the Village of Blasdell will look to carry on their service for four years in races for trustee and village justice.
Rob Hefner, who was first elected to a two-year term in 2011, will seek a four-year term this time.
And Kathy Seufert King, who was elected to the board in 2012, will look to remain on the board for another full, four-year term. King defeated former Trustee David Adrian, who sought the final year of a seat held previously by his brother Jeff, who resigned in January of 2012.
Also on the ballot this year is Daniel Grasso, who is seeking another four-year term as village justice.
Three seats on the Angola Village Board - including mayor – will be decided with all of the positions holding four-year terms.
Mayor Howard “Hub” Frawley will look to continue as mayor, with incumbent trustees John Wilson and Charles Katra also seeking to continue on the board.
All three positions are unopposed.
Peter Zaenglein, who was appointed to the Village of Farnham Board for a one-year term in 2012, will run unopposed for the final year of the seat.
Zaenglein was appointed by Mayor Julie Ann Gibbons, who originally held the seat before she was elected as mayor.
