Three Ilsley Library posts draw seven candidates

MIDDLEBURY — Middlebury residents on Town Meeting Day will decide a three-way race for two seats on their selectboard, though the hottest election ticket on March 6 will be for the Ilsley Library Board of Trustees. A combined total of seven candidates are vying for three positions on the Ilsley board, with interest likely bolstered by a budding plan to expand and renovate the historic library building at 75 Main St.
Candidates for local school and municipal offices had until Monday to file their nomination petitions to get on the March 6 ballot. Here’s how the 2018 election slate looked in Addison County’s shire town on Tuesday morning:
•  Incumbent Selectman Farhad Khan, former Selectman Gary Baker and resident Lindsey Fuentes-George are competing for two available three-year terms on the selectboard. The Independent has already published reports on Khan’s and Baker’s election plans, and will reach out to Fuentes-George for a “meet the candidate” interview.
•  Incumbent John Freidin and fellow Middlebury residents Joseph McVeigh, Amy Mincher and David Munford are competing for two available three-year terms on the Ilsley Library board.
In a separate bracket, Patricia Chatary, incumbent Barbara Doyle-Wilch and Alice Eckles will vie in a runoff for one available one-year term on the library board.
•   Margaret “Peg” Martin, a former Middlebury selectboard member and state representative, and resident Davina Demarais are each running unopposed for separate three-year seats representing Middlebury on the Addison Central School District Board (see related story on Page 1A).
