for the two open positions in the upcoming Village elections. I think it’s
always better if the voters are given as many candidates as possible from
which to choose. That way, the voters make the decision as to who wins and
who loses. If only two candidates run for only two positions, those two
candidates automatically win and the voters don’t really have a say in the
process, unless the voters exercise their right to vote for a Write-In
