NEW CASTLE — A municipal election scheduled for April 8 has been canceled with only one candidate running for the open mayor’s seat and three candidates to fill the three open town council seats.
Trustee Bob Gordon will take over as mayor, with current mayor Frank Breslin filling a council seat. Councilors Bruce Leland and Art Riddile will fill the remaining two council seats.
Each position is for a four-year term. The new board will be sworn in at the April 15 town council meeting.
A coffee and cake reception to thank Breslin for his time as mayor and longtime councilor Greg Russi for his services is tentatively scheduled prior to the 7 p.m. April 15 meeting.
“This is a way for the community to show their appreciation for Frank and Greg,” said Town Administrator Tom Baker.
