Canidates set for vote

In Whitehall, there is no one named “unopposed” on the ballot.

In every race for the 2009 General Election on Tuesday, Nov. 3, every seat up for grabs in the town of Whitehall has at least two people running for the position, starting at the top administrator’s job.

 

 

 


Republican George Armstrong, a current school board member who had to run in the September primary in order to receive his party’s nomination, will run for the position of Whitehall town supervisor against Democrat Richard “Geezer” Gordon Jr., who resigned in July after spending 20 years on the bench as a Whitehall village and town justice.

 

Four people are vying for the two empty seats on the Whitehall Town Board, with Republican incumbent David Hollister being joined on the GOP ticket by current town Supervisor Vernon Scribner. The Democrats counter with current Whitehall Police Department Sgt. Richard LaChapelle and former state corrections officer George Enny.

 

Democrat Robert Juckett will run against incumbent Republican Louis Pratt for the position of town highway superintendent, while Democrats Richard Juckett and current Village Justice Julie Scott will run against Republicans Thomas Nichols and Theresa Billado for the two town justice positions that are open in the upcoming election.

 

Hampton town Supervisor Donald Sady and Dresden town Supervisor Robert Banks will run unopposed in the Nov. 3 election.

 

In Hampton and Dresden, the only contested race is for two positions on the Dresden Town Board, with Republicans Joanne Farley (incumbent) and former Town Board member Arthur Borin running for the two seats along with Democrats George Gang and Carl Sobeck.
