Sleight gets nod for mayor; Spike and Baker endorsed for board seats

CANASERAGA — Three incumbents running for reelection in the Village of Canaseraga in the March 19 general election have locked up nominations from both major political parties after Tuesday night’s Republican Caucus in the Village Hall.

GOP caucus-goers nominated Mayor Peggy A. Sleight and trustees Denise Spike and Stephen Baker for positions on the village board. According to Mary Underwood, Canaseraga elections commissioner, three people took part in the Republican caucus. The GOP gathering was chaired by Karla Orgek.

Sleight and Spike, who are both Democrats, along with Baker, who is not affiliated with a party, were nominated by Canaseraga Democrats at their party caucus on Jan. 23.

All the election races are for two-year terms.

There is still time for Canaseraga residents to file petitions for independent line bids for the election, although there is no indication anyone is seriously considering it. Potential candidates can turn in completed petitions to Underwood between Feb. 5-13. She said as of early Wednesday afternoon, no one had sought packets to pass independent petitions.
