EARLVILLE – Earlville residents go to the voting booth Tuesday to select among candidates for mayor, three trustees and a justice. Village voters will also determine the fate of a public referendum to extend term limits.
The elections will be held from noon to 9 p.m. Tuesday in the Municipal Office, located at 8 North Main St. in Earlville.
There are two candidates for mayor: Incumbent Mayor Mark A. Doeberl, and newcomer Vito Bolognone.
Doeberl had been elected to a third, two-year term as village trustee in 2010 before being appointed last summer to mayor of the village. He is sales manager at Christman Motors in Norwich and has been a village resident for 24 years.
Bolognone has lived in the village for the past five years and is a self-employed design and construction professional. He said he has been directly responsible for more than 30 projects over the past 25 years that placed more than $350 million worth of construction in place.
Acting Village Justice Ronald Hailston, the incumbent, is unopposed on the ballot for the four-year term. Incumbent Trustees Henry R. Moore and Gerald L. Hayes are hoping to keep their positions. They are on the ballot for two, full-term positions. Newcomer Thomas Taylor is running to complete the one-year term trustee position vacancy left by Doeberl.
A notice of permissive referendum was filed for voters to extend term limits from two years to four years for the offices of mayor and trustee.
