Kennard Convention Yields Changes
August 22, 2007 - During a town convention held last Thursday, Democrats in Kennard chose three town council candidates to represent their party in the fall election, and effectively selected the town's next clerk-treasurer.
Of the four Democratic candidates vying for the three open council seats, Beth Coy, John Ryan and Robert Bryant secured their party's nomination by getting, respectively, 30, 29 and 19 votes of 33 cast. The fourth candidate, Ralph Connor, received 14 votes.
The only challenger Coy, Ryan and Bryant will face on the November 6 ballot is incumbent council member Michelle Cleek, a Republican. The other two incumbent council members, Democrats Marybeth Pribble and Sue Millis, are not seeking reelection, although Millis did make an unsuccessful bid for the party's nomination for clerk-treasurer.
Kennard Democrats overwhelmingly selected Julie Snyder to be their party's candidate for clerk-treasurer. Synder received 23 of the votes cast, while Millis, who had previously served as the town's clerk-treasurer before her brief stint on the town council, only received nine. Because no Republicans, independents or members of any other parties are seeking this office, Snyder will be unopposed in the fall election and will take over as the town's new clerk-treasurer on January 1.
