Dissolution Votes in Williamsville & Sloan

WILLIAMSVILLE, N.Y. - Residents in the Villages of Sloan and Williamsville spoke loud and clear in the voting booths Tuesday, voting, by an overwhelming margin, to keep their respective village governments. 

Earlier in the day, government downsizing advocate Kevin Gaughan could not have felt terribly comfortable outside of the polling places in both Williamsville and Sloan Tuesday, as voters in both the villages decided whether to dissolve their local governments.

Outnumbered 15-1 at one point early in the afternoon, Gaughan politely asked voters for their consideration. The referendums are part of Gaughan's movement to reduce the size of local governments by letting the people decide for themselves.

From the moment voting began, the polling places in both villages were extremely busy, as were the parking lots, with plenty of jousting between Gaughan and the villagers.
