ILION, NY – Ilion voters will head to the polls Tuesday to elect a new village mayor.

Current mayor Terry Leonard decided not to seek re-election.

The two candidates running for the position are Democrat Bridget Trevor-McKinley and Republican Brian Lamica.

Trevor-McKinley is a nurse practitioner and currently serves on the village board as a trustee.

Lamica is a retired Ilion police officer and is currently employed with the Rome City School District.

Both candidates say problems with the village’s water supply is a big concern.

“Everything from the treatment plant needs work, to the water mains going to our homes that are over a hundred years in most areas,” says Lamica.

“It’s affecting the quality of water in the village, and that’s priority number one.”

“During my time as trustee, we have contracted with an engineering firm and we are putting together a comprehensive plan,” says Trevor-Mckinley.

“Presently we are seeking grants to reline our sewer, so we are moving in that direction to look at our major water issues.”

Polls are located at the Village Municipal Building on Morgan Street, and the Moose Lodge on Barringer Road.

Polls are open from 12 pm to 9 pm.
