LaRose elected Mayor

Few voters turned out for the Granville Village election where the four candidates ran unopposed for mayor, two trustee seats and village judge.

Brian LaRose will be the new mayor garnering 55 votes; LaRose won a four year term. Returning trustee Paul Labas also earned 55 votes with trustee Dean Hyatt taking 54; both men will also serve four year terms.

Village Judge Roger Forando will return to the bench, he received 55.

Receiving a write in vote in two slots, former mayor and recent candidate for town supervisor Tom Scott was written in once for trustee and once for village judge.

Village Clerk Rick Roberts said 58 voters came out to participate in the election. “A few people didn’t vote for every office,” Roberts said. The village sent out 35 absentee ballots and had received 16 of them back by the voting deadline.
