Cope will be new mayor

Political newcomer Diana Cope will be Margaretville’s new mayor following a 102-24 win over longtime village resident Lauren Davis on Tuesday.

Ms. Cope ran a low-key campaign during her first run for public office.

Mr. Davis was seeking the village mayoral post for the third time. He waged a public battle during his campaign, often criticizing the actions of current Mayor Bill Stanton and the board of trustees.
The new mayor will take office on April 1.

The Fleischmanns Village Election results are as follows:

Mayor 2 Year Term Todd Pascarella 17
Village Trustee 2 Year Term Kathleen Rostad Miles 17
Village Trustee 2 Year Term Benjamin Fenton 15
Village Trustee 1 Year Term David Yates 13
