Want to run for village office?

Village trustees Marc Angelillo and Tim Lynn's seats are up for re-election in 2011, along with Mayor Robert Green. The village election date is Tuesday March 15, 2011. The village board is a legislative body consisting of the mayor and four village trustees. All board members, including the mayor, serve a two year term. There are no term limits established in the village of Skaneateles

These elected officials are considered part time and are paid positions. The mayor receives an annual salary of $14,500. The trustees make $3,000 annually for their service.

Interested candidates need to form a party of their own. For example, long time village trustee, Sue Jones, runs under the banner of the Village Party. Former trustee Kathryn Carlson ran under the United Party. Interested candidates should contact village clerk Patty Couch at 685-3440. It will be necessary to gather 50 signatures on a petition.
