MEDINA – Two village trustees who were running without opposition on the ballot were re-elected on March 19.

Mark Kruzynski, the Medina High School principal, received 174 votes for another two-year term. Mark Irwin, a retired corrections officer, received 118 votes.

The two ran together on the Village Party line. They have been pushing for consolidation of government services, including a push to study the dissolution of the village.

They weren’t without opposition on election day. Former Village Trustee Owen Toale received 61 write-in votes. He has been critical in recent village meetings about a plan to hire a village manager for $70,000 to $80,000 a year.

Other residents also received write-in votes, including Mike Sidari, 6; Mike Maryjanowski, 2; Marguerite Sherman, 1; and Peter Huth, 1.

The new terms start April 1.
