Races contested in Hampton, here
Next Tuesday, residents will have the chance to make their voices heard from the town level to the highest office in the nation’s government.
Election Day is Nov. 4, with polls open from 6 a.m. through 9 p.m.
In Whitehall, residents in voting districts I, II, and III will vote at the Skenesborough Fire Department firehouse on Skenesborough Drive; residents in district IV will vote at the Whitehall village offices on the corner of Saunders and North Williams Streets; district V residents will vote at the Whitehall town garage on Route 4.
In Hampton, voters may go to the town hall, located at 2629 County Route 22A to cast their votes, while Dresden town residents can vote at the town hall on Clemons Center Road.
Locally, the town of Hampton will vote for a new town supervisor, with acting town supervisor Don Sady running against write-in candidate Bill Gage.
The town of Whitehall will vote for a new town councilman, which will be between village highway superintendent Jiem Rozell and James Putorti, who currently works part-time in the family garage.
Both positions locally are up for election due to the seats being vacated. In Whitehall, the winner will fill the remainder of the term initially won by Stephen Lane, who passed away earlier this year. The Hampton supervisor’s position was vacated by former town supervisor Leon “Skip” Clark, Jr., who resigned after moving to Vermont for professional reasons.
On the state level, local seats for state assembly and senate are up for grabs, with Ian McGauhey and Anthony Jordan running for the assembly position. Jordan is the Whitehall village attorney.
Unofficial election results will be printed in next week’s edition of the Whitehall Times.
