Nobody running for justice in St. Johnsville, Briele seeks to fill unexpired term

The tri-village area won't see much election action next Tuesday, March 18.

In St. Johnsville, there will be an election for village justice, although nobody has filed a petition, meaning that nobody is officially running for the position. 

Polls, at the St. Johnsville Community House, 16 Washington St., will be open for write-in votes.

Currently, the village of St. Johnsville has an acting justice, Bruce Dye, who is not running to retain the position.

If a person is nominated through write-in votes, Village Clerk Karen Crouse would send the nominee an official letter asking if they will accept the position. If they decline, the acting justice will retain the seat.

If a person is elected who has not received proper training, they must do so prior to their official appointment. Crouse noted that "the justice department has the final say" regarding any appointment.

Crouse noted that nobody, to her knowledge, had launched a write-in campaign as of Monday.

In the village of Palatine Bridge, a special election will take place to fill the unexpired term of former trustee Beth Shostek, who vacated her seat in October, 2013, and was replaced by the village council with Peter Briele in February, 2014.

Briele will run to fill the remainder of Shostek's term, which ends in 2015.

Polls will be open in the village of Palatine Bridge from noon to 9 p.m at the Village Municipal Building, 11 West Grand St.
