Fredonia board prepares for vote

The Village Board on Monday started getting ready for the March 14 village elections.

Trustees Susan Mackay and Jacqueline Penfold-Williams were appointed inspectors of the election, which will be held in St. Anthony's School Hall on Moore Avenue.

In related news, Mackay and Penfold-Williams announced they will not seek re-election. Mackay, a Democrat, has been on the board for eight years. Penfold-Williams, a Republican, has been on for four years. No candidates for the two trustee positions have been announced by either party.

Other seats up for re-election include those of Trustee Joseph Cerrie and Mayor Michael Sullivan. Both men said they would make statements next week regarding whether they would be seeking re-election.

The board Monday also approved the use of the former teen center in the Village Hall basement for a winter farmers' market. This will make the farmers' market a year-round happening in the village. In the summer, the market is held on Church Street between Day and Temple streets. Barbara Sam, of Fredonia, was appointed as farmers' market manager at no compensation.
