2 Democrats Vying To Face Brockway

 By JIM KEVLIN & LARISSA RYAN • Special to www.AllOTSEGO.com

COOPERSTOWN – The 2021 battle for the Otsego County Board of Representatives has been joined, with more candidates fielded than any time in recent memory, with contests in 11 districts.

In the 14 districts, 11 Republican candidates, one Conservative (allied with the Republicans) and 13 Democrats filed petitions to run by 5 p.m. Thursday, the deadline for the filings in the Nov. 2 local elections, which include county and town boards.

Independent candidates can still enter races.  The first day to circulate independent petitions is April 13, and they must be submitted to the county Board of Elections between May 18 and 25.  Contact the board or county chairman for details.

As it stand, if the Republicans lose one district, they would lose their majority (which rests on an alliance with board Vice Chairman Meg Kennedy, a Conservative).  If the Democrats lose even one district, the Republican hold on the county board would be cemented for another two years.

CHECK FOR UPDATES THROUGHOUT DAY

MILFORD – Emily Popek, former Daily Star manager editor, has posted on her Facebook page that she intends to run for county representative in District 5, challenging Meg Kennedy, the board’s vice chairman.

District 5 includes Milford, Hartwick and New Lisbon.  Under the  county board’s weighted voting system, the position has the most people, and thus the most voting clout, of all the 14 districts.
