PELHAM, N.Y. Joe Marty and Paul McGoldrick, incumbent Democratic candidates for the Village of Pelham Board of Trustees, in addition to Democratic newcomer Adam Kagan, were easily able to secure victory in Tuesdays uncontested election.
A total of 315 votes were cast in a voter turnout of 7.3 percent, low considering Pelham's 4,276 registered voters.
McGoldrick grabbed the most votes with 108. Kagan received 107, and Marty got 100.
Marty, the veteran of the three, was first elected to the board in 2010. Over the past two years, he has been the main contact between the board and the Pelham Fire Department. Before serving on the Board of Trustees, he was active on the village Planning Board.
McGoldrick won his first election to the board after being appointed by Mayor Ed Hotchkiss to fill the remainder of Trustee Greg Breskins term after Breskin resigned.
A Pelham resident since 2008, Kagan garnered the second most votes in his first election. During his time in the village, he has coached Little League and served on the village Planning Board.
Trustee Theresa Mohan decided not to run for re-election, which opened a third spot on the board. Trustee terms last two years.
