CAMBRIDGE, N.Y. -- Local elections in the town are largely unopposed this year.
Voters will cast their ballots Tues., Nov. 5, from 6 a.m. to 9 p.m. at the town highway garage, located next door to the town hall, at 844 County Road 59.
The race for highway superintendent is contested between incumbent Alan Davis and Eric ("Bud") Kenyon.
The two-year term comes with an annual salary of $36,500.
For the post of town supervisor, current deputy supervisor Cassie Fedler is opposed on the ballot by Ted Berndt.
After submitting petitions to the Working Families and Democratic parties, Berndt suspended his campaign, although too late to withdraw his name from consideration, according to Tom Rogers, of the Washington County Board of Elections.
"If he is elected, he will have a choice to make," said Rogers. From past experience with similar issues relating to councilperson positions, Rogers said likely the board could appoint someone.
"We haven't seen this situation before with the supervisor position, only with the town board," said Rogers.
The two-year term carries an annual salary of $2,800.
In uncontested races, Doug Ford and Sue Herrington are on the ballot to fill two open town council seats. Ford will be returning to the position, while Herrington is new. Each seat is a four-year term, which pays $800 per year.
Town Clerk Heather Greenawalt will seek reelection to the two-year position, which pays an annual salary of $18,500.
Incumbent Town Justice Janet DeCarlo will look to retain the position, which pays $3,225 annually throughout a four-year term.
The next meeting of the town board will be Monday, Nov. 11, at 7:30 p.m.
