Incumbent Republican Gregg Sagendorph is running unopposed for highway superintendent. Sagendorph is being cross endorsed by the Conservative and Independence parties.
Messina's slate includes former Empire Zone Program director Republican Fred (Fernando) Di Maggio for Town Board, cross endorsed by the Conservative Party; Republican committeeman John Flanagan for Town Board; businesswoman Republican Melanie Calzone for town clerk; and Sagendorph for highway superintendent.
Clyne said the Democratic slate will "definitely be running competitive races this fall."
"We're comfortable where we are politically, and we feel we have a qualified group in the race," he said. "I don't want to make any predictions because it can boomerang against you sometimes, but I would say we're comfortable."
Burns said this will be the year the GOP returns to Bethlehem Town Hall.
"Party favoritism was not a part of our candidate selection. Our candidates represent a few of our neighborhoods, not just the center of town," she said. "I am pleased and honored to be supporting our team. Over the next few months they will be knocking on doors and sharing their vision for Bethlehem.""
