Only two villages in the Roslyn area, the Village of Roslyn and the Village of Roslyn Estates, will be holding board of trustee elections on Wednesday, March 18.
In both villages, there is no opposition to incumbent trustees. In the Village of Roslyn, longtime trustee Nolan Myerson is stepping down from his seat on the BOT. Myerson had been a member of the BOT since April 1995. From 1998-2008 he served as deputy mayor of the village.
In Roslyn, Mayor John Durkin is up for re-election as is Trustee Marta Genovese. Both are members of the Community Party. The party has tapped Lisa Aberle to fill Myerson's seat on the BOT. Ms. Aberle is currently chairman of the Village of Roslyn's Zoning Board.
In Roslyn Estates, another incumbent trustee, Todd Street, will also not seek re-election. However, no formal nomination for Street's spot on the BOT has been put forth. The deadline for filing for the March 18 election was Feb. 10 and no resident decided to run for the vacant seat. Village officials speculate that there may be a write-in campaign to fill Street's place on the BOT.
Two other incumbents, Mayor Susan Ben-Moshe and Trustee Judith Tartell, face no opposition to another term. Seymour Reisman, the Village Justice, is also unopposed in his own re-election bid.
In April, all the villages in the Roslyn area will begin debating and then approving budget drafts.
