Voters weighed in Tuesday as several of Cayuga County’s villages as well as Jordan and Skaneateles in Onondaga County held elections, with races for mayor, trustee, and in one case, village justice.
Out of the races, only two were contested, with many incumbents going unopposed or newcomers taking vacated seats without a challenge.
Here are results that were reported on Tuesday night:
Village of Jordan
The only village with a race for a justice position, Jordan voters elected Michael Weirs to the position with 36 votes. Mark Gustafson and Casey Brim were both elected to four-year term trustee positions with 39 and 41 votes, respectively.
Village of Skaneateles
In the race for two, four-year term trustee positions, incumbent Gregg Eriksen won re-election with 121 total votes, and Kathleen Zapata was elected with 118 total votes. There was one write-in vote for Steven Babbles. Incumbent Sue Dove did not seek re-election.
Village of Union Springs
All three incumbents in the races for mayor and two trustee positions ran unopposed, easily winning re-election. Mayor Francis “Bud” Shattuck received 26 votes. Trustees Bill Boyd Jr. and Marion Case both received 27 votes. The terms of all three positions last until April 2021.
Village of Weedsport
No candidates officially appeared on the ballot in Weedsport in the special election to fill the remaining three years of Chris Lukins' term after he resigned last December, so all votes received were write-ins. Chad Platten won with 63 votes, followed by John Clark with 48. Francis Gross and Robert Jorolemon both received one vote. One blank ballot was turned in.
