Two lifelong residents running for City Council | Top Story

BATAVIA — Voters in Batavia will not have any contested races to decide on Tuesday, but there are two people running to keep the seats to which they were appointed within the last year — Councilperson-At-Large Rich Richmond and Ward 6 Councilmember Tammy Schmidt.

Richmond, running on the Republican and Conservative lines, has been in office for about eight months since his appointment Feb. 28. He replaced Jeremy Karas on the Council after Karas resigned due to time commitments. Richmond is running to serve the last three years of Karas’ term. Schmidt was appointed in December 2021 to replace Rose Mary Christian after Christian resigned because she was moving out of the ward. Schmidt is running on the same lines.
