QUEENSTOWN — The Town of Queenstown has officially canceled the election for the town commission originally set for Monday, Nov. 4.
Town Commissioner Holger “Hogie” Schuster filed for re-election. Previously the town office had received the official paperwork for another candidate for the position, but that was later withdrawn.
Schuster remained the only candidate who stayed in the election even after the write-in deadline Friday, Oct. 25, passed.
In accordance with the Town Charter, Section 19-21.2, “In the event that the seat for Commissioner is uncontested and the time period for filing a certificate of nomination has expired to file as either an official candidate or as a write-in candidate, then the Town Clerk-Treasurer may cancel the election.
If the election is canceled, the candidate running for the uncontested seat shall be declared elected and shall be sworn in as Commissioner.”
Schuster will be sworn in for another term during the Wednesday, Nov. 20, meeting.
