Kennard Council Incumbents Bow Out as New Candidates Prepare for Thursday’s Vote
August 15, 2007 - Democrats in Kennard will gather Thursday, August 16, to decide which three of their party's candidates for town council will appear on the fall ballot, and to decide who the town's next clerk-treasurer will be.
Kennard Town Hall, 100 N. Main St., will be the location of the Democrats’ town convention, which is scheduled to start at 7 p.m. Democrats who are registered to vote are eligible to take part in the convention, casting votes to determine their party's nominees for the November 6 election.
Four Democrats are seeking a spot on the town's three-member council: Robert Bryant; John Ryan; Beth Coy; and Ralph Connor. Voters taking part in tomorrow's convention will determine which three of these candidates will appear on the fall ballot against a lone non-Democratic challenger, Republican Michelle Cleek.
None of the current Kennard Town Council members - President Marybeth Pribble (D), Michelle Cruse (R) and Sue Millis (D) chose to seek reelection, although Millis is seeking the town's clerk-treasurer's office, a position she previously held. Because there is only one challenge from outside their party, Democrats taking part in tomorrow's convention are assured that at least two of the three candidates they nominate will take seats on the council when new terms begin January 1.
Democrats attending the town convention will also be asked to nominate a candidate for the town's clerk-treasurer position. Because neither of the two Democratic candidates, Julie Snyder and Millis, will be facing a challenge on November 6 from anyone outside their party, the choice Kennard Democrats make on Thursday effectively decides who will take over for current Clerk-Treasurer, Chanda Hastings (R), whose terms ends December 31.
