A New York village rocked by an alleged political corruption scandal earlier this year has a host of candidates vying for the Democratic line for mayor, including the mayor indicted in the case.

It’s a five-way Democratic primary race for mayor of Spring Valley. Incumbent Mayor Noramie Jasmin wants to continue in her position. She and her deputy mayor were indicted on charges in April in a political corruption case that spanned from Albany to Spring Valley, in Rockland County, to New York City. They pled not guilty. The other four Democrats in the primary race include two current village trustees – Demeza Delhomme and Joseph Gross. There is a candidate on the Republican side and one who holds both the Conservative and Independence Party lines. And it’s a crowded Democratic primary race for Spring Valley Board of Trustees positions, where voters may cast their ballots for two of 10 Spring Valley residents who are running.
