Thomas Carbine of South Main Street has withdrawn his candidacy for the 1-year at-large council seat that will be up for a vote in Smyrna’s April 26 town election.

As a result, Robert M. Novotny of Lake Drive West is unopposed for the 1-year seat, which was up for election to fill the final year remaining on the term started by former councilman Bill Pressley.

Since Novotny is the only candidate, no election will be held for that seat.
 
There have been no changes to the list of candidates for the other two council seats up for election this year.

Two residents are running for the town’s District 1 council seat: Regina I. Brown of North Main Street and Patricia Damestoir of North East Street. The voting for this seat is limited to resident of District 1, which mostly consists of the portions of town east of Main Street and Rt. 13.

There are three candidates for a 3-year at-large seat on Smyrna Council: sitting councilman Anthony H. DeFeo of Sunnyside Road, David C. Pleasanton of West Mt. Vernon Street and John S. Rhoades of Wheeler Circle. All voters who reside in Smyrna town limits can vote in elections for at-large council seats.

The deadline to file as a candidate was on March 15.

Polling will take place on April 26 at the Citizens’ Hose Company firehouse at 103 W. Commerce St. in Smyrna.
