Whereas Village Mayors do not have the authority to cancel local elections in their districts, we have urged the Governor to postpone elections to a later date. At 6:36PM on the 16th we received an email allowing us to do just that until the 28th of April.
Please be advised that the Village election originally scheduled for the 18th of this month for two Trustees is in fact delayed until the 28th of April by the Governor of the State of New York. He alone has that authority.
We believe now and have believed for many days that the decision is the prudent and cautious thing to do.
I want to thank the Governor for hearing us and responding appropriately.
