CELORON - Celoron residents will not only have county and town officials to vote for on Election Day, but also village representatives.
Because of a change made in March 2010, the village of Celoron's election now coincides with the Nov. 8 general election. Previously, the village held its election in March.
Mayor John Keeney, whose running for his second term, and trustees Norman Mattison and Scott Schrecengost are all incumbents running unopposed on both the Democratic and Republican lines.
In March 2010, citizens voted on the decision to change the village's election to November. The board had passed a resolution to make the change, but Celoron residents passed a petition to have a permissive referendum so residents could have a say in the decision.
Village residents approved the proposition to hold village's elections in conjunction with town, state and federal elections in November by a vote of 118-25.
At the time, Norman P. Green, county Democratic election commissioner, said changing the village's election would not affect the Board of Elections duties and would barley increases the costs of handling November elections.
The only contested race in Legislative District 10, Ellicott Ward 1, District 1 is for County Legislature. Incumbent Mark Tarbrake is running on the Republican and Property Rights lines against Patrick Tyler, who is supported by the Democratic, Conservative, Working Families and Independence parties.
