In Catskill, local Democrats will be meeting at the Greene County Courthouse, 320 Main St., at 7 p.m. Thursday, January 20, to discuss and possibly decide on candidates for two open positions in the Village of Catskill election set for March 15. Two positions are up for re-election, one Village Trustee and one Village Justice. Incumbent Joe Kozloski, a Democrat, has communicated his intent to stand for re-election, and party officials noted in a recent email that they are currently seeking candidates to face incumbent Village Justice Bill Wooten, a Republican. Expect more news of local village caucusing, and candidate declarations, in the coming weeks as well as a slew of Meet the Candidate events sponsored by WGXC with moderation by local chapters and officials of the League of Women Voters.
