Sandford, Bartholomew unopposed in village elections

B y Derek Liebig

Voters will head to the polls Tuesday with very little to decide.

Village elections will be held on March 18, but barring the unforeseen, the village board of trustees will be together for at least another year.

Incumbents Walter Sandford and Ken Bartholomew are the only candidates who will appear on Tuesday’s ballot and  will be elected to serve another two years in office.

This is the second consecutive year the village elections have featured less than a full complement of challengers. Last year Mayor Peter Telisky was unopposed in his bid for a second term and only one candidate, Donna Filomio, challenged incumbents Mike LaChapelle and Marge Mohn. LaChapelle and Mohn were both overwhelmingly reelected.

Both Sandford and Bartholomew will be seeking their fourth terms in office.

Bartholomew is a retired truck driver and has served wastewater treatment commissioner and most recently as police commissioner.

Sandford retired last year as chief of the Fort Edward Police Department and like Bartholomew has served as village police commissioner.

Bartholomew will appear on the Republican ticket while Sandford’s name will appear on the Democratic party line.

The current village board has been together since 2010.

Village-wide elections will be held from noon to 9 p.m. Voting will be held at the Whitehall Municipal Center.
