HOLLEY – Six candidates have turned in petitions to run for the Holley Village Board in the June 19 election.

Mayor Brian Sorochty is seeking another two-year term as mayor. He is being challenged by Shawn O’Mara, who works as a police officer with the Gates Police Department.

Two current village trustees – Conni Nenni and Kevin Lynch, the deputy mayor – are also seeking re-election. They are challenged by Alexa Downey and Robyn Schubmehl.

Candidates need to turn in petitions signed by at least 50 village residents who are eligible voters. There is a deadline of Friday for additional candidates, although no one else has picked up a petition.

Holley is the only village in Orleans County that holds its election in June. The others – Albion, Lyndonville and Medina – have elections in March.
