Another election is upon residents of Cazenovia.
This year, three residents are vying for two available seats on the Cazenovia Village Board.
Approximately 7,100 people currently live in the town of Cazenovia, and about 2,900 of those residents live within the village limits. While the town boasts many scenic vistas and successful businesses, the image brought to mind when one thinks of Cazenovia is often that of Albany Street and the Historic Cazenovia Business District — the heart of the village.
We ask that village residents take time out of their schedules on Tuesday, June 19 to vote for the two candidates they deem most capable of ensuring the future success of the historic municipality.
Village board incumbents Dave Porter and Tim Mahoney are seeking re-election, while newcomer Jim Joseph is hoping for a chance at his first term. Each candidate is highly qualified, and possesses the necessary backgrounds and experience to help Cazenovia continue to improve.
The Cazenovia League of Women Voters held a candidate forum in the Municipal Building the evening of June 12, which helped to further enlighten local voters to the platforms and priorities of each candidate.
We urge each voter to consider candidates’ histories, especially examples of past service and commitment to the village and its residents. Along with the past, we feel the most important items for consideration also include the future; the vitality of Cazenovia Lake, the outlook of Albany Street and historic properties, as well as the possibilities of area development — both residential and commercial. Whoever is elected will hold their seats for the next two years.
Voting will be open to all village of Cazenovia residents from noon to 9 p.m. June 19 at the American Legion Hall, located at 26 Chenango St. We hope to see you all there.
