Jim Kevlin/The Freeman’s Journal

Newly elected village trustee Walter Franck presents Cooperstown Food Bank co-director Audrey Murray with almost $2,000, plus $300 in food, collected by the Village Democratic Party at a pre-election spaghetti dinner at the Vets Club.  From left are food bank volunteers Betsy Jay and Lisa Booan, reelected trustee Jeff Katz, and the two other newly elected trustees, Jim Dean and Ellen Tillapaugh Kuch.  Village Democratic chairman Richie Abbate said the fundraiser was very successful and would be held again, but not at the Vets Club, which raised criticism that the Democrats were trying to politicize an apolitical venue.
