Albion’s candidates were picked last month at party caucuses

The slates are set for the March 18 village elections in Albion, Lyndonville and Medina. Tuesday was the deadline for candidates to submit petitions for the election.

• In Albion, the Republican and Democratic parties held caucuses to pick candidates on Jan. 28. Albion has two four-year seats open on the Village Board, the positions currently filled by Mattea Navarra-Molisani and incumbent Peter Sidari. Neither is seeking re-election.

Republicans at their caucus nominated Kevin Sheehan, a former trustee, and Christopher Barry to run for the Village Board. The Democratic Party nominated Maurice Taylor.

There was still an opportunity for an candidate to submit petitions to run in the election but no one turned in petitions by the deadline on Tuesday, Village Clerk Linda Babcock said.

Voting is at the Village Hall from noon to 9 p.m.

Lyndonville has three four-year positions open on the Village Board, including the mayor’s position, currently held by John Belson.

Trustee seats currently held by Danny Woodward and Andrew Cousins will also be on the ballot.

Belson and Woodward both are running again for the same positions. They are the only candidates. Belson will be on the ballot under the “John Belson Party” and Woodward is running under “The People Party.”

Cousins isn’t seeking re-election. His spot will be filled by the village resident who gets the most write-ins votes.

Voting is at the Village Hall from noon to 9 p.m.

Medina also has three positions up for elections, including the mayor’s position currently held by Michael Sidari and the trustee positions currently filled by Marguerite Sherman and Tim Elliott.

All three are seeking re-election to the same positions. They are running under “The Village Party.”

Charles Hartway also is running for trustee. He is running under “The Silent Majority” party.

Voting in Medina is from noon to 9 p.m. at the Senior Center, the former railroad depot on West Avenue.
