Margaretville Mayor Stanton stepping down after six years

After serving as mayor of Margaretville for six years, Bill Stanton has announced that he will not be seeking a fourth term.
The position of mayor will be on the ballot in the village’s March election, as will two seats on the Village of Margaretville Board of Trustees. Trustees Iris Mead and John VanBenschoten will be up for re-election in the March 18 election.

The only requirements to be a trustee are that the candidate be a United States citizen, be at least 18 years of age, and be a Margaretville resident.
