HOLLEY – The June 21 village election has two people running for mayor, including John Kenney, a former Holley mayor, and Mark Bower, a retired Hilton elementary school principal and director of staff development.

Kenney is a retired Holley math teacher. He served several terms as mayor and trustee until June 2016 when he stepped away from public office. Bower currently is on the board as a village trustee.

Kevin Lynch, the current mayor, isn’t running for the position.

There are two trustee positions open, but only Connie Nenni, an incumbent, is seeking a two-term term. The other trustee will be elected by a write-in vote.

Voting will be from noon to 9 p.m. in the main entrance (ground level) of the Village Office at 1 Wright St., which is the former Holley High School.

Kenney is running under The Dove Party, with Bower under the Historic Holley Party, and Nenni with The Peoples Party.
