NOMINEES FOR VILLAGE OFFICE
The following nominees will be listed on the ballot:
- Mayor – Robert L. Cox III
- Mayor – John A. Zaccaro Jr
- Trustee – Frank Wolf
There is only one nominee for the two open Trustee seats.
Members have asked for clarification on the matter of write-ins. Please be advised that the ballot will allow the option of voting for a write-in candidate for each of the three seats, as it does for every election. With respect to the two Trustee seats, there will be only one nominee listed on the ballot and two write-in lines for Trustee. The two candidates who receive the highest number of votes will win the two open seats. In the event that any winning candidate declines or is ineligible to sign the oath of office for which they are elected, the Village Board will follow the procedures for filling that vacancy prescribed by law.
