Three villages in Orleans County will have elections on March 15 for seats on the Village Board.

In Lyndonville and Medina, the elections will include the village mayor as well as trustees. Albion’s mayor, Dean London, has two more years on his term. However, two trustees – Peter Sidari and Gary Katsanis – are at the end of their terms.

The Republican and Democratic parties will have caucuses to nominate candidates for the Albion trustee positions. The Republicans have scheduled their caucus for 7 p.m. on Jan. 26 at the Orleans County Courthouse. Democrats have until Tuesday to post when they will have their caucus, said Linda Babcock, the village clerk.

In Lyndonville, the mayor’s position is open as well as two trustee spots. All three positions are for four-year terms.

Steve McAvoy was the mayor until resigning on Oct. 31 due to the demands of his full-time job. James Tuk, the deputy mayor, has been acting as mayor. Tuk has picked up petitions to run for mayor, said Village Clerk Teri Woordworth.

The trustee positions for Ellen Tuohey and Danny Woodward Jr. are up for election and both incumbents have picked up petitions. The petitions are due in the village clerk’s office between Feb. 2-9.

In Medina, the mayor’s position, currently filled by Andrew Meier, is up for election, as well as trustee positions currently filled by Marguerite Sherman and Michael Sidari. The terms are for two years.

Petitions need at least 100 signatures from eligible village voters and must be turned in to the village clerk by Feb. 9.
