GERMANTOWN — Four candidates are running for two town council seats: Republican incumbents Austin Sullivan and John Kukon, and Democratic challengers Tony Albino and Don Westmore.
Albino, 70, is running for his first term as town councilman on the Democratic Party line.
Albino, who has lived in Germantown for 20 years, was a cancer researcher and earned his Ph.D at Cornell University.
Sullivan, 37, though no stranger to the town government, is running for his first term as town councilman on the Republican, Conservative and Independence Party lines.
Sullivan worked in the town hall for former Town Supervisor George Sharpe, and served, and subsequently resigned as, deputy supervisor under former Town Supervisor Roy Brown.
Westmore is looking to be elected for a second term — he previously served on the town council from 2010 to 2014 — on the Democratic Party line.
Westmore strives to improve the town while preserving its rural character, protecting the environment and attracting robust businesses to provide goods, services and jobs.
Kukon is running for re-election to a second term on the Germantown Town Board.
Kukon, 35, belongs to no official party, but is running on the Republican, Conservative and Independence tickets.
