The Canandaigua City Republican Committee has announced its candidates for this year’s city council and city supervisor elections, setting the stage for five contested races. Each seat carries a four-year term.
Lindsay Loiacono will be running for the City Council’s Ward 1 seat, while Sean Buck, a past candidate for City Council, will be running for Ward 2. John Nagle Caraluzzo is seeking the Ward 3 seat, and Patrick Rhodes is running for the Ward 4 seat. Incumbent City Supervisor Rich Russell will be seeking reelection to the Ontario County Board of Supervisors, representing Wards 2 and 3. Russell, who has been in office since January 2010, will face a challenge from Democrat Nancy Yacci, who was recently endorsed for the seat.
Meanwhile, City Democrats have announced their own slate of candidates, including Michael Mills for Ward 1, Guy Turchetti for Ward 2, Marcy Senglaub Bruner for Ward 3, and Erich Dittmar for Ward 4. Incumbent Councilmembers Karen White, Dan Unrath, and Ellen Polimeni are not seeking reelection.
Currently, incumbent Democratic Canandaigua Supervisor David Baker, who represents Wards 1 and 4 on the Board of Supervisors, is running unopposed.
The upcoming elections promise to be highly contested, with candidates from both parties vying for seats on the City Council and the Board of Supervisors. The outcomes of these races will have significant implications for the future of Canandaigua and its residents.
