PELHAM, N.Y. The election for the Village of Pelham Board of Trustees will most likely be uncontested because no candidates were nominated at the Republican Party caucus on Tuesday night.
Democratic incumbent trustees Paul McGoldrick and Joe Marty will be seeking re-election in addition to Adam Kagan for the first time. The three men were nominated to serve on their party line at the Pelham Democratic Party caucus on Jan. 28. The three men will likely all get elected because Trustee Theresa Mohan will not run for re-election.
McGoldrick will be seeking election for the first time as he was appointed by Mayor Ed Hotchkiss to serve on the board for the remainder of Trustee Greg Breskins term. During his time on the board, McGoldrick has concentrated on the renegotiation of the Department of Public Works union contract. The local company owner of P.J. McGoldrick Co., Inc. served as chairman of the Pelham Planning Board prior to joining the board.
Marty was first elected in 2010 and has served as the contact for the Village Fire Department as well as the contact for the committee reviewing the site that once held the NYW&B Railroad. Prior to his time on the board, he was active on the Village Planning Board.
Kagan, a Pelham resident since 2008 and also an entertainment lawyer, has become involved in the community in various ways. He coached Little League and since 2011, he has served on the Village Planning Board.
The election will take place on March 20.
