LIVINGSTON COUNTY — Three Villages are melting the snow with hot political races that are heating up with the approach of the March 18th election day.
It’s a coin toss for hottest village race, as both Mount Morris and Dansville have Trustee positions on the ballot.
In the Village of Mount Morris, three candidates are gunning for two positions. The Democrats send seasoned politicians Harold Long, who was the former mayor and Patsy Zingaro, who unsuccessfully ran for office two previous times. The Republicans send Guy Brickwood, an incumbent who served a half-term last year and first time candidate Aaron Galvin.
“It really is important that you look at all the candidates and evaluate them,” said Galvin. “At the end of the day you should vote for the ones that best represent you and your values. I have a lot invested in this community and I am looking forward to raising my son in a community he can be proud of, not a community plagued with high taxes and debt.”
On the other side of I-390, in Dansville, three candidate seek out two positions. The Republicans are running with Dan Rittenhouse and Richard Fox on the ballot and the Democrat party candidate is Robin Humphrey.
