MEDINA – Village residents will go to the polls today from noon to 9 p.m. at the Senior Center at 615 West Ave.

Two trustee positions are open in Medina and both incumbents, Mark Irwin and Mark Kruzynski, aren’t seeking re-election.

Village Planning Board member and historian, Todd Bensley, was the only candidate to submit petitions to be on the ballot. Bensley, a Medina social studies teacher, is running under the independent “The Medina’s Future Party.”

Two other candidates are mounting write-in campaigns. Owen Toale is a former village trustee and a retired newspaper publisher. Jeremy Hogan is co-owner of O’Brien’s Tavern in Medina.

All three candidates have sent letters to the editor to the Orleans Hub. Click here to see the letters.
