Village elections to be held March 19

Mar. 11—Residents in several villages will head to the polls March 19 to elect mayors, trustees and a village justice.

There will be a new mayor elected in the village of Franklin as Tom Briggs is retiring and not running for re-election. While most of the contests are not contested, there are contested races for trustee positions in Fleischmanns, New Berlin, Otego and Unadilla. In other villages, write-in candidates will be selected as trustees. Polls will be open from noon to 9 p.m.

The following is a list of candidates by county, then village.

Afton — no election this year.

Bainbridge — Mayor Philip Wade is running for reelection. Steven Eisenberg and Timothy Mayes are running for reelection for their trustee positions.

Earlville — Christian Vischi and Robert Sporing are running for the two, two-year trustee positions. No one is running to fill the vacancy for a one-year term, so it will go to the write-in candidate with the most votes.
