WHAT HAPPENS AFTER THE TOWN MEETING?

For the candidates selected to be Civic Betterment Party Village Trustee candidates:

  • The CBP assists in filing certification of the candidate’s nomination with the Village Clerk.
  • The statement is accompanied by the candidate’s statement of candidacy, which the CBP prepares for the candidate’s signature.
  • The statement is also accompanied by a receipt from the County Clerk that the candidate has filed the required Statement of Economic Interest, which the CBP supplies to the candidate and which the candidate must complete and mail to the County Clerk.
  • The CBP obtains nominating petitions, helps circulate them for signatures and assists candidates in filing these with the Village Clerk by the filing deadline.

For the candidates selected by the Civic Betterment Party caucus as Library Trustee candidates:

  • The CBP assists in filing the candidate’s Statement of Candidacy-Nonpartisan with the Village Clerk. The CBP prepares the statement for the candidate’s signature.
  • The CBP obtains nominating petitions and see that they are signed by “at least 50 qualified voters” and also will assist in filing these with the Village Clerk.
  • The filing must also be accompanied by a receipt from the County Clerk that the candidate has filed the required Statement of Economic Interest, which the CBP supplies to the candidate and which the candidate must complete and mail to the County Clerk.

If Civic Betterment Party candidates are opposed in the spring General Election, the CBP will support them, publicize their candidacy and campaign for their election.

The victorious candidates will take office in May.
