William J. Kemble is reporting in the Daily Freeman two candidates are vying for a three-year term on the Catskill Village Board in next Tuesday’s village elections. Competing for the seat are Democratic incumbent Joseph Kozloski and Republican challenger Rick Paolino. Kozloski is seeking his fourth term. He is also currently serving the second year of a three-year term as a Greene County legislator. Kozloski is a retired foreman for the New York State Bridge Authority. His priorities include the revitalization of the Black Bridge area, and to promote the village as a location for new businesses. Paolino is a semi-retired officer with the Hudson Police Department. He has lived in Catskill village since 1990. Paolino served in the U.S. Air Force from 1981 to 1985, and is a member of the American Legion, the Elks Lodge and the village Planning Board. He believes a move to consolidate essential services would help the village realize some significant savings. He also supports promoting the village and recruiting more businesses to locate in Catskill. Incumbent Village Justice Maria LaRosa will also be on the ballot, running unopposed for a second, two-year term. Polls are open 11 a.m. to 9 p.m., Tues., Mar. 18, at the Catskill Fire Department building on Central Ave. Read the full story in the Daily Freeman.
