The Village of Lancaster's Independent Party has named its slate for the March 19 election which will determine whether the party will continue its control of the Village Board.

Mark Good, a newcomer to village politics, will seek the 1st Ward trustee seat now held by Dennis E. Przukuta of the People's Party.

Good, a Como Park Boulevard resident, has a master's degree in public affairs from the University of Iowa and is employed by Thorner-Sidney Press of Buffalo.

Michael J. Beilman, a real estate agent, Central Avenue resident, and University at Buffalo graduate, will seek the 2nd Ward trustee seat now held by Edward G. Meyer of the Community Pride Party.

Beilman, lost in 1989 by 31 votes to Darlene L. Humphrey of the Community Pride Party for a 2nd Ward trustee seat. He is a member of the Zoning Board.

Richard W. Addesa, elected in a special election June 6, 1989, to the 3rd Ward seat vacated by Arthur K. Posluszny when Posluszny was elected mayor, is seeking re-election to a full, four-year term.

A Milton Drive resident, Addesa teaches science at Aurora Middle School.

Since Addesa's election, Posluszny's Independent Party has caster election
held a narrow four-to-three edge on the board. The party's main goal, to reduce costs by consolidating services with the Town of Lancaster, was dealt a setback in June when voters rejected a move to abolish the village Police Department and transfer its functions to the town.

The slate, approved at a party meeting last week in the Elks Lodge, was announced by Gregg R. Smith, 1st Ward trustee and Independent Party chairman.
