Cazenovia This Election Day promises to be an exciting one. Unlike the most recent village election, candidates for seats on the Cazenovia Town Council are contested. Two candidates hope to claim the position of town of Cazenovia supervisor, and three hopefuls are vying for two seats on the town board.
For voters and area residents, Tuesday, Nov. 8, will be a good day. Each of the candidates has an extensive background of community service and dedication to Cazenovia, and each hopes to help continue improving our municipality.
Town of Cazenovia supervisor incumbent, Ralph Monforte, has shown the community what he can do in the last two years, and is hoping for another chance to serve town residents. Tom Clarke will be running for the same seat, backed by his extensive experience as a village trustee, deputy mayor and mayor of Cazenovia.
Liz Moran also entered the race for the Cazenovia Town Board with a large amount of experience, having served as town supervisor during an important time for Cazenovia, as the Comprehensive Plan was adopted. Jennifer Basic has already achieved an authoritative, yet admirable reputation in town with her widespread legal experience as well as her willingness to participate in, and host, community events. Bill Zupan, completing his fourth year on the town board, is ready to sign up for another two. His tireless work toward the vitality of Cazenovia Lake have proved successful, and he promises to continue the trend.
Because the race is contested, it is even more important for us, as voters, to show up at the polls on Nov. 8 and make sure we do our part. Without partaking in this important part of local government, none are entitled to protest the outcome.
Although, with the caliber of professionalism and dedication found in each candidate, Cazenovia residents stand with little to lose and lots to gain.
It’s a win-win-win. See you at the polls.
