Bristol seeking trustee candidate

Alfreda Bradford at a January Village Board meeting.

The resignation of Trustee Alfreda Bradford has the Bristol Village Board looking for a replacement only a couple of months after being up to full strength.

Bradford resigned two weeks ago and did not give  a reason for her resignation, said village President Richard Gossling. She was elected to a one-year term Jan. 19 in a special election to fill seats on Bristol’s first ever Village Board. The northwest portion of the town incorporated as a village as of Dec. 1, 2009.

At a meeting tonight, the Village Board decided to appoint a replacement rather than hold a special election. Village Clerk/Treasurer Amy Klemko  estimated that a special election would cost about $2,000.

After being informed of the cost, Trustee Bill Glembocki said “I can’t see doing it that way.”

Information about how to apply for the appointment is expected to be posted on the village/town website Tuesday.

Applications will be accepted until April 1. The appointment will then be made at the April 12 board meeting. The candidates will be asked to be present at that meeting.
