Three seats on the Otsego County Board of Representatives are being contested in Tuesday’s mid-term elections, as are five seats on Oneonta’s Common Council, control of the Richfield Town Board, three state Supreme Court seats, and other local races. Polls will be open from 6 a.m. to 9 p.m.
FLY CREEK – Taxes have emerged as an issue in the Town of Otsego in the final days of the Town Board campaign, with a Republican incumbent saying they “may double” and a flyer from Republican candidates delivered over the weekend estimating the increase at 25 percent.
But Town Supervisor Meg Kiernan, who is running unopposed in Tuesday’s election, said taxes will go up only a bit this year and still be lower than in 2015. “The Town of Otsego is healthy,” she wrote in a letter to the editor.
