P otential candidates interested in running for public office have until Feb. 10 to submit their name for this March’s village elections.

Anybody interested in running for village office will need to complete an independent nominating petition.

The petition needs to be submitted to Rick Roberts, village clerk, at the village offices by Feb. 10.

Petitions can be picked up at the village office or downloaded from Washington County or New York State’s websites.

Each petition requires 50 signatures, although Roberts recommended potential candidates get a few extra in case any of the signatures are invalidated. Any registered voter from the village of Granville who has not already signed another candidate’s independent nominating petition can sign a petition.

There will be four positions on this spring’s ballot: a four-year term for village mayor, two four-year terms for trustee and a four-year term as village justice.

Mayor Brian LaRose, Trustees Dean Hyatt and Paul Labas and Justice Roger Forando have all announced their intent to run again.

As of Tuesday morning, Roberts said he had not received an independent nominating petition for any other candidates, although at least one person has stopped by the office and picked up petition.

This year’s elections will be held on Wednesday, March 18.
