The Village of Roslyn Estates could face a write-in election after only one candidate filed a petition to run for two open seats in the March election.
The village received petitions for trustee Brian Feingold, who is seeking re-election, but not for any other candidates, Village Clerk Bryan Rivera said. Trustee Sandy Joel Siff, whose term is expiring, did not submit any petitions by the Feb. 9 filing deadline, Rivera said.
“After being a Deputy Mayor for two years and Trustee for 10 years for a total of twelve years, I am retiring from the position of Trustee,” Siff wrote in a statement. “I have enjoyed being involved in the Village of Roslyn Estates government and it has been a worthwhile experience for me serving in the position of Trustee and Deputy Mayor.”
Residents can write in a second candidate’s name, or, if just Feingold is elected, the mayor can appoint a trustee to the two-year term.
Siff was deputy mayor from April 2009 through April 2012 and has served as a village trustee since 2004. He previously served on the village planning board.
Roslyn Estates is located on the North Shore in the town of North Hempstead, south of Northern Boulevard, bordering the village of Roslyn and the hamlet of Roslyn Heights. It is made up of 400 families.
