CHENANGO COUNTY – On Wednesday, March 18, elections will be held in the villages of Earlville and Smyrna, and while some changes may occur, the races in both villages will be uncontested.
The deadline for petitions for village office was 5 p.m. Tuesday. As that deadline came and went, petitions were submitted for each of this year’s five open seats.
In the Village of Smyrna, Mayor Joseph Beaudoin submitted a petition for re-election to the office. After serving as mayor for six years, Beaudoin will run for another term. Over the past year, Beaudoin said he and the Village Board have been working on day to day operations to keep the village going, mentioning specifics like the sewer and water systems. In the coming year, Beaudoin said he hopes the village will be able to improve the sidewalks.
