PELHAM, N.Y. - Pelham resident Virginia Rivera immediately noticed the three uncontested races on the ballot when she voted at the Town House Tuesday night.
"That's the first I ever saw that," she said.
Despite the races being uncontested, she felt it was important to vote. The Republican candidates for town clerk, town supervisor and council member all ran unopposed.
Blake Bell and Daniel McLaughlin, both of whom ran on the Republican and Conservative lines, won seats as councilmembers. Peter DiPaola Jr., also a Republican and Conservative candidate, is the town supervisor-elect and will replace Joseph Solimine. Timothy Case, who ran on the Republican and Conservative lines, is the town clerk-elect.
Ed Doty, co-chair of the Town of Pelham Democratic Party, said in October that his party decided not to oppose the Republicans and Conservatives in those races.
The Democrats just didnt have candidates that we wanted to put up at this time, Doty said.
