At the Democratic Caucus last night, a crowd of about 30 people unanimously nominated Lou Allstadt for the one-year Trustee term, and Bruce Maxon for a three-year term. Chairman Richard Abbate was nominated for a three-year term, in the absence of another nominee, but he will be spending the next few days searching for a replacement candidate.

The Democratic candidates for Mayor and Trustees of Cooperstown, Jeff Katz, James Dean, and Cindy Falk, would like to thank the residents of Cooperstown for their support, and pledge to work tirelessly for the good of our beloved village!
Mark your calendars for March 19, from 4-8 pm, at Templeton Hall, for the Annual Democrats' Spaghetti and Meatball dinner...a fundraiser for the Cooperstown Food Pantry. Dinner is free, but donations to the food pantry are welcomed! County, Town, and Village elected Democrats will be serving, and Chairman Abbate and Committee members will be cooking! Come for a great meal, and to support a wonderful cause!
The most often heard excuse for not voting in an election is "my one little vote won't make a difference." Yet history is full of instances proving the enormous power of one single vote. In many cases, the course of nations has been changed because one individual ballot was cast — or not cast — depending upon your point of view. I believe the Village residents not only owe it to themselves but to the men and woman who died protecting our right to vote. I hope all residents will exercise their right to vote on March 20.
