Veteran aldermen lose Batavia council races
Apr 9, 2013 11:31 PM -
The Batavia City Council lost its most experienced alderman Tuesday night, with the defeat of 32-year alderman Eldon Frydendall, 4th Ward Alderman Jim Volk and 6th Ward Alderman Robert Liva. The losses mean almost half the city council will be freshmen, as incumbents in wards 2, 3 and 7 did not seek re-election. In the 7th Ward, where nobody was on the ballot, write-in candidate Drew McFadden won a spot on the council with two write-in votes.
