MEDINA – Village residents re-elected Mayor Mike Sidari and Trustees Marguerite Sherman and Tim Elliott. They were unopposed, just like they were in 2020.

Sidari received 36 votes, Sherman 39 and Elliott 30 in the election today. They were elected to two-year terms that start April 1.

They ran together under the independent “The Village Party” line.

Sidari has been mayor for nearly six years. He said recently that Medina has a great team on the Village Board, Planning Board, Zoning Board of Appeals and with the community organizations.

Those groups have been able to push Medina forward with its downtown business district, industrial park and other community initiatives. He cited citizens who led efforts for a new dog park, skate park, bluebird trail, an upgraded Pine Street Park with a splash pad, and much improved Boxwood Cemetery.

The community projects improve the quality of life for local residents, Sidari said, and also play a factor in whether a business chooses to come to Medina. The business owners want to see a community with pride, and strong schools, a vibrant downtown and thriving neighborhoods, Sidari said.
