Village of Dryden election today, Noon - 9pm

Polls are open today in Dryden Village Hall, 16 South Streeet, from noon to 9pm.

I haven't been around to cover it, but this year has seen a much more vigorous race than usual. For mayor, Democrat James Zimmer is challenging Republican incumbent Randy Sterling. Democrats Mike Murphy and Lisa Valentinelli are running against Republicans Daniel Wakeman and Paul Rachetta for two-year Trustee terms. There's a one-year term open as well, with Democrat Mary Ellen Bossack running against Republican Mike Hattery.

You can get a rough sense of what the race is about from the candidates' replies to the Dryden Courier and this piece in Tompkins Weekly.

If you live in the Village of Dryden, get out and vote, despite the slushy weather!
