Jul 07, 2021 6:33 am
Democrat Michelle Williams defeated Republican Jeffrey Holliday in the Catskill Village special election July 6, to fill an empty village board seat, according to the Greene County Board of Elections. Williams, with 55.56 percent of the vote, gives Democrats a 3-2 majority on the Catskill Village board. The vote totals were 315 for Williams to 252 for Holliday. The seat has been vacant since the January resignation of former Village President Vincent Seeley. Williams now fills the position until March 2022. Seeley stepped down from the board following a four-month unannounced absence, forcing the board to reorganize.
