Over the fence
A few others have called in and thought of going for write-in votes for the election. But they want us to wait until they can talk it over. So for now we have Carolyn (Russell) Grotevant as a write-in candidate to fill a seat on the Town Board. She can be reached on Facebook to answer your questions. For all who have not yet registered to vote — if you are 18 and over, you have about a week left to mail a voter registration form; they are available at the Town Hall. Or you can stop by the Board of Elections at the Municipal Center. To find out about absentee ballots, call 761-6459.
