Trustee field set

 

 

Four for two.

 

That is the number of candidates for the number of trustee seats in the upcoming village elections.


The March 16 election for two seats on the Whitehall Village Board will offer two candidates from the Democratic Party and Republican Party each, featuring the two current board members whose terms are up.

 

Incumbents running for re-election include Democrat Walt Sandford. Sandford, who also serves as the police chief in Fort Edward, will be seeking his second term after being elected to the board in 2008.

 

“I found it rewarding to serve here,” said Sandford. “I don’t think, now, that I truly realized the troubles we had until I got on the board and I believe that we have a board where everyone is working well together and I want to continue to work hard to come to a community resolution on these problems.”

 

Also running for re-election is Republican candidate Kenneth Bartholomew. Bartholomew also is completing his first term as a trustee, and serves as the commissioner of the sewer district, an important post given the work being done on the system at the present time.

 

“I know what is going on and I have a good working relationship with the board and the DEC,” said Bartholomew. “I know that I have saved this village money and I feel I can save even more money for the village in the future.”

 

Also running for trustee on the GOP ticket is longtime former Whitehall school board and current BOCES board member Gillette Nash.

 

“I have time on my hands and I have been thinking about running for the village board off and on,” said Nash. “With my knowledge of municipal governments and budgeting, I want to see if I can help out the village.”

 

Running on the Democratic ticket for the trustee position along with Sandford will be Robert Putorti Sr.

 

 

The Whitehall village election will be held on Tuesday, March 16, from noon until 9 p.m. with voting taking place at the Skenesborough Volunteer Fire Department.
