Caucuses will select village board candidates

(Continued)

“I have tremendous respect for the other trustees and Jeff,” Capozza said.

Franck could not be reached for comment Tuesday, but Katz said it was his understanding Franck would not be seeking re-election in March.

“Quality people are going to be missing from the board,” Katz said. “Each one brought such strength to the board.”

Katz said that in her six years on the board, Mebust has been “an incredible trustee.” Walter Franck, he said, came on the board at an important time and has been a great deputy mayor during the past year and Capozza did a great job chairing the Doubleday Field committee during his year on the board.

“They are all going to be missed,” he said.

The two caucuses will be held at 7 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 29. The Democrats will meet in the fire hall on Chestnut Street and the Republicans will meet in the downstairs meeting room in the municipal building on Main Street. 

Candidates may also have their name placed on the ballot by circulating an independent nominating petition.

The election will be held from noon to 9 p.m. March 19, in the fire hall.
