Two Bath Democrats have been picked to run for vacancies on the village of Bath board.
The Democratic caucus selected current Trustee Bill Austin and former Bath Town Supervisor Ron Deming for the March 15th slate.
Austin was appointed by the board last year to fill the vacancy left when then-trustee Donna Simonson was elected mayor.
Current trustee Tom Sears decided not to run this year, Bath Democratic Party Chairman Gary Ostrander said.
“We’re pleased with the candidates we have and hope to make a good run of it,” Ostrander said.

The GOP caucus selected former Bath Central School District Board President William von Hagn and U.S. Army veteran Mark Bardeen  for their  March 15th slate.
Bardeen works for Shirleys Lumber and is active in local civic groups. A member of the school board until 2010, von Hagn is employed by Corning Inc.
The two will vy with Democrats Bill Austin and Ron Deming for two four-year seats on the village board.
Bath Republican Committee Chair Robin Lattimer said von Hagn and Bardeen were the only nominees at the caucus and were unanimously endorsed.
