On Tuesday, voters in both Mayville and Forestville approved a referendum to move the village elections in November to coincide with the general election. According to today’s Post-Journal, the vote in Mayville was 135 to 25 and the vote in Forestville was 58 to 27.
In addition to the two referendums, some of the villages in the county also had contested races. Winners of those races include:
- Brocton: Bryan Woleben – village trustee;
- Cherry Creek: Michael Seivert and Betty Milspaw – village trustee;
- Mayville: Richard Syper and Tim Jacobson – village trustee;
- Westfield: David Brooker and Michael Catalano – village trustee.
All other races were unopposed.
This year, the Villages of Cassadaga, Falconer, Fredonia and Lakewood do not have any expiring offices and will not be holding elections. The Villages of Celoron and Silver Creek elections will be held in November.
