Candidates file petitions for Medina, Lyndonville village boards

It looks like it will be a quiet election for the Village Boards in Lyndonville and Medina.

In Lyndonville, two incumbents – Charles Coville and James Tuk – are unopposed for the trustee positions. The election is on March 18. The election is typically the third Tuesday in March but will be pushed back a day this year because of St. Patrick’s Day is on March 17.

In Medina, only one candidate turned in petitions signed by at least 100 people. Todd Bensley is the village historian, member of the Planning Board and a Medina teacher. He is running under the independent “The Medina’s Future Party.”

Bensley spoke out against dissolution last year during a public meeting in April.

There are two positions open in Medina. Both Mark Irwin and Mark Kruzynski aren’t seeking re-election.

Last election in March two write-in candidates – Mike Sidari and Marguerite Sherman – were both victorious.
