Middletown will have three candidates running for two commissioner spots in its April election after a nominating convention Tuesday night.

Incumbents Chris Goodman and Tom Catania will run, along with challenger Jean LaPadula.

Burgess John Miller will run unopposed for his fifth term.

Goodman will seek his third term as commissioner, and Catania his second.

Candidates who weren't nominated at the nominating convention can submit a petition signed by 40 eligible voters.

The deadline for candidates to register is March 6. Voters must register to vote in the election by March 13.

The election will be held between 7 a.m. and 8 p.m. April 6 at the town's Municipal Center at 31 W. Main St.

Anyone who wants to vote by absentee ballot must notify the town administrator in writing by March 20 in order to be mailed a ballot. Absentee ballots must be received by election day.

The town's 2018 election had 359 ballots cast, out of 3,608 registered voters in the town.
