Baldwinsville: Library trustee candidates sought

The Baldwinsville Public Library will hold its annual budget vote and trustee election from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. Thursday April 28 in the library at 33 East Genesee St. in Baldwinsville.

The Library's budget for 2011-12 is currently under study by the Board of Trustees. Details will be available in the Baldwinsville Messenger at a later date. Printed copies of the budget will be available at area banks, village and town offices, and in the library during the week prior to the budget vote.

Voters will have an opportunity to cast their ballots for three trustees: the five-year terms for the seats of trustees Bruce King and Jacqueline Olmsted are open, as is the two-year unexpired term for the seat of former trustee Nelson Butler. Potential trustee candidates must file petitions with the signatures of 25 qualified people by 4 p.m. Monday March 28 with the school district clerk at the district office on East Oneida Street.

Petition forms and instructions are available at the library. Petitions may be signed by anyone who is 18 years of age or older and has resided in the Baldwinsville School District for 30 days or more.

The Library Board of Trustees meets regularly once a month and is responsible for policy and general supervision of library finances. Trustee candidates must also be U.S. citizens and 18 years of age or older and have been Baldwinsville School District residents for at least 30 days.

Current Board members are Barbara Aitken, president; Susan Downey, vice-president; Donna Arseneau, Bruce King, Jacqueline Olmsted and Robert Manning.
