Only three of 10 races for village boards will be contested

Village board candidates face opposition in only three of the 10 Cattaraugus County communities that will hold elections next Tuesday.

Allegany, Ellicottville and Little Valley will not hold village elections.

All polling places will be open from noon to 9 p.m.

In Cattaraugus, June M. Ellis, an incumbent, is seeking another term on the Democratic line, while newcomers Matthew J. O'Connor and Patrick J. McGlew are running on the Republican line. The two highest vote-getters will win two-year terms. Balloting will take place in Village Hall, 14 Main St.

South Dayon residents will choose two of four contenders vying for four-year terms. Democratic candidates are Barbara J. Butcher, an incumbent, and Gary J. McAlpine. They will face Brian K. Himes and Scott R. Kerr, the Republican nominees. Residents will vote in the village library, 17 Park St.

In Gowanda, which lies partially in Erie County, incumbents John Certis and Dale DeCarlo, running on the Open Door Party line, face challenges for new two-year terms from Donald Lazar and Edward Kota, the candidates of the Concerned Taxpayers Party. Voters will cast their ballots in Village Hall, 27 E. Main St.
