COOPERSTOWN VILLAGE ELECTIONS

SURPRISE CANDIDATE

SEEKING MAYORALTY

Jonathan L. Becker, a lawyer who has lived in the Village of Cooperstown since 2013, chats with former mayor Carol B. Waller after he emerged this evening as a surprise candidate for the Republican nomination for mayor. He was approved unanimously a few minutes ago by 10 of the party faithful gathered in the Village Board chambers at 22 Main. The Republican caucus also nominated two candidates for village trustee, both with credentials as businessmen: Fred Schneider, owner of the Landmark Inn and a Chamber of Commerce board member, and Art Boden, whom GOP Chairman Vince Casale described as “Cooperstown’s Host.” Boden managed New York Pizza and, lately, assumed the role of maitre d’ at Upstate Grill, which is under the same ownership. The GOP ticket will face Trustee Ellen Tillapaugh, who Democrats nominated for mayor last evening, and incumbent trustees Cindy Falk and Jim Dean, who are running again. (Jim Kevlin/AllOTSEGO.com)
