Sea Cliff Election
Sea Cliff voters are going to the polls on March 20 to elect their choice for mayor and two trustees. This year, voters will consider candidates on the slates of three political parties. Last year's election wound up in court, after election irregularities were alleged. The outcome of that election was not set aside by the court although the court acknowledged that the election procedures were not perfect. This year's election is showing signs of controversy as the nascent New Village Party and their legal counsel have raised objections to the placement of candidate names on the coming election's ballot.
