AVON — Tensions are building at the Avon Town board meetings as a new political race is on the horizon.
Jim Harrington, who has recently anounced his candidacy and has been attending the board meetings on a regular basis, is trying to unseat one of the incumbent members either Jim Blye or Tom Mairs, who are up for re-election.
Tensions escalated this past meeting between Richard Steen and James Blye with a disagreement over maintenance for the Avon Town Building,
The disagreement quickly turned into an argument, that turned into a yelling match, and made the meeting so uncomfortable that some attendees quickly left the meeting.
The candidates, will all convene at the Avon Republican Cuacus which is scheduled for June 25th at 7 p.m. at the Avon middle school auditorium.
The positions available are the Avon Town Supervisor, two Town Council positions, and one Town Justice position. All of the positions are four-year-terms.
