ALBION – There are five trustee positions up for election on May 2 for Hoag Library. Voting is from noon to 7 p.m. at the library.

Candidates can pick up petitions starting today at the library. Petitions are due by 7 p.m. on April 4 at the library’s circulation desk. The petitions need to be signed by at least 25 residents 18 and older in the library’s service area (towns of Barre, Albion, Gaines and Carlton).

The positions up for election include a spot recently vacated with the resignation of Anitrice Bennett. The other four positions are currently filled by Linda Weller, Jim Babcock, Kevin Doherty and Debbie DiBacco.

The top three vote-getters get four-year terms, and next two get three-year terms.
