MEDINA – Two write-in candidates, who announced their candidacies last week, pulled off an upset and beat the incumbent trustees for the Village Board.

Marguerite Sherman received 229 votes and Michael Sidari, 207. That topped David Barhite, 175; and Patricia Crowley, 171.

Barhite and Crowley ran under the Village Party with Mayor Andrew Meier, who was re-elected with 227 votes. There wasn’t a write-in candidate to challenge Meier. However, he did not receive the vote from 180 of the 407 voters in the election.

The terms for the elected officials are for two years and begin on April 1.

Orleans Hub will have more on the election.
