It’s going to be an active election season in the Village of Homer. Democrats will field two candidates in the upcoming village elections.
The Democratic caucus held its nominating meeting last night where former democratic trustee candidate Janet Steck was nominated to run for a seat on the Village Board, along with former trustee Suzanne Riley.
Steck ran for a seat on the board back in 2004. Riley has served on the board previously. She lost her seat last March. Incumbent Democratic trustee Paul Gower will not seek reelection.
Riley and Steck will face Republicans Ed Finkbeiner and Patrick Clune. Republicans nominated Finkbeiner and Clune earlier this month over incumbent Republican trustee Andy Brush.
The race this year is expected to focus on the continued debate over whether or not the village should move its offices back to the Homer Town Hall. The village moved out of the building in 2010 amid concerns over health and safety in the building.
The elections are March 15th.
