Westfield Democrats announce slate of candidates for village elections

WESTFIELD – The Village of Westfield Democratic Committee is excited to announce its candidates for Village Mayor, Village Trustee and Village Justice in the March 19 election.

Candidates Michael VandeVelde, Robert Cochran and Jeff Thomas all bring experience, energy and excitement.

They are committed to working together to ensure that the village operates with transparency and accountability, manages taxpayer dollars wisely, and preserves its special quality of life while leading the community in a new direction.

Westfield is facing some important decisions; with limited resources the community needs leaders who can put our money where it will do the most good.

These three candidates offer diversity in their personal, educational and professional skills and experiences to serve village residents.

All three have served the village in the past – VandeVelde as a past village trustee, Cochran as a current village trustee, and Thomas as the current village justice.
