Somers residents will soon head to the polls to decide who will take over the Town Supervisor position, currently held by Supervisor Mary Beth Murphy who has decided not to seek re-election.
Voters will also decide on the other two seats for town council members, which are being sought after by both Republicans and Democrats.
The Somers Democratic Committee has endorsed Christine Robbins, chairwoman of the Committee, for the supervisor position. Chris Foley and Harvey Kriedberg are the two Democrats endorsed for the two open council member seats.
