Bergin and Coldrick, according to the DG, earned the most votes in a five way race for the two available board seats, 134 and 116 respectively, reports the County Clerk’s Office. The duo defeated candidates Aaron Morris, Sharon Pineo and Frank Spano.
Bergin had been the acting mayor since the retirement of Mayor Dixie Lee Sacks in 2017. While Bergin chose to run for the Village Board, Sacks’s post was at last filled by former board member Gary Putnam, according to the DG. Putnam ran unopposed for the office. Putnam’s was one of the seats filled by the new election, along with Chris Nellisen’s after the he chose not to seek reelection, according to the DG.
Paul Block, who filled the vacant seat last year on the Board of Trustees left open when Bergin stepped in for Sacks, was elected to serve the remaining year left on the original term. Block, reports the DG, also ran unopposed.
