PELHAM, N.Y. A total of five trustee positions will be up for election Tuesday in Pelham and Pelham Manor. The elections, which are uncontested, run from 6 a.m. to 9 p.m. in both locations. Pelham voters must go to the Daronco Town House, while Pelham Manor residents will vote at the Fire Department headquarters.
The three candidates running for the three Village of Pelham Board of Trustees spots are Adam Kagan, Paul McGoldrick and Joe Marty. While Kagan and McGoldrick are looking for their first election to the board, Marty is seeking re-election.
Trustee Theresa Mohan has decided not to run for re-election, which meant there would be a third spot open on the board.
Running for the first time, McGoldrick was first picked by Mayor Ed Hotchkiss to serve out the remainder of former Trustee Greg Breskins term.
Kagan has been a Pelham resident since 2008 and has coached Little League and served on the Village Planning Board.
Marty, who was first elected to the board in 2010, has been the main contact for the villages Fire Department. He was active on the Planning Board prior to his work on the Village Board.
In Pelham Manor, Neal Schwarzfeld (D) and Lou Annunziata (R) are seeking re-election to the Board of Trustees after being unanimously nominated by the Republican and Democratic Party caucuses of the village.
Schwarzfeld was appointed by former Pelham Manor Mayor Lorri Gorman to serve as village attorney before being elected to the Village Board in 2010.
Annunziata, a dentist for 38 years and a former 25-year chairperson of the Pelham Manor Zoning Board of Appeals, was appointed to the board in 2011 to serve out the remainder of Mark Brukmanns term.
Gorman commended the two candidates at a February meeting of the Pelham Manor Republican Party caucus for their push of nonpartisan politics.
The two of them running really is a continuation of a long-held belief in this village to leave national party politics at the door and just attract talented people who are interested in the good of the village, she said.
Mayor James OConnor was thankful to have both men running for re-election.
