Village elections slated Tuesday

FONDA – Two trustee positions in Fonda will be up for election Tuesday, but no candidates have been announced.

The village has two open positions on the Board of Trustees, but no candidates filed to run for the four-year terms, according to Village Clerk JoAnn Downing.

According to Downing, no one has filed a petition to run, making the election a write-in campaign.

The positions previously belonged to Walter Boyd and Robert Galusha. Neither trustee could be reached for comment.

Other villages also are holding elections for town positions on March 18.


Bruce T. Lyon, a Republican, will be running unopposed for village mayor, which carries a four-year term. Republicans Robert L. Griffen and Brock Herringshaw and Democrat Robert G. Maxwell are squaring off for two four-year trustee terms. Democrat Kornel D. Martyniuk and Republican Daniel Clark are running for a two-year trustee term.


Incumbents Matthew Ginter and Debra Ellsworth will be running again for two village trustee positions, which both hold four-year terms. John M. Spaeth is running for village mayor, which has a four-year term, unopposed.


Village Trustees Lewis Eric Jones and Lawrence Cornell are running for two-year terms. Trustee Mario Cristaldi is running for a one-year term, and Village Justice Joseph Gilston is running for a four-year term. All are incumbents running unopposed.


Two trustee positions are up for election, with Hope Party candidate Robin Rose and Common Sense Party candidate Ted Quackenbush seeking to be elected to these positions. These terms last four years.

The St. Johnsville Village Justice position is up for grabs for write-in candidates in the village. The election is for the remaining three years of a four-year term.
