PROGRESSIVE PARTY SELECTS CANDIDATES

The Progressive Party of Depew has selected its slate of candidates for the village elections in March.

The candidates, who were chosen by a majority vote of the Depew Progressive Party, will contend for three trustee seats and a village justice seat that will be up for grabs in the March 15 village elections.

Among those endorsed by the party was Daniel Beutler, a former Depew School Board member who ran unsuccessfully against Mayor Joseph McIntosh in last year's village election.

Beutler will be joined on the Progressive Party slate by village trustee candidates David Burkhardt and Jeff Davis. Burkhardt has previously run unsuccessfully for seats on both the Village Board and the Depew Board of Education. Davis is chairman of the Progressive Party of Depew.

All three will compete for village trustee seats currently held by David Mazur, Nicholas Sherwood and Eugene Molinaro.

Village Justice Gordon Willis, a member of the Depew Action Party, was cross-endorsed by the Progressive Party. Willis is seeking a third term on the bench.

There was a split in the Action Party last year, delighting members of the Progressive Party, which had been driven out of power by the Action Party nearly a decade ago.

The Action Party has not yet announced its slate of candidates for the village election.
