The 2024 race for Mayor of Omena is underway!

Who will be the 7th mayor of Omena? You decide!

Voting is Tuesday, July 9 through Thursday, July 18 at 5 pm. Candidates are posted on the Tally Board outside the museum in Omena and on the OHS website.

Voting is open to everyone- far away friends, relatives, neighbors, co-workers- all can vote for as many candidates as they like, as many votes as they want – the cost is only a dollar a vote!

The funds raised will be used for the Putnam-Cloud Tower House Museum preservation. This is the 20th anniversary of moving the building from the Villa Marquette, which means that the roof and hvac are 20 years old. We’re planning ahead.

Omena’s Mayoral Election was first held in 2009 for a three-year term and this is the 6th election to be held. Past mayors, Tucker Joyce, Maya Deibel, Polly Loveless, (who passed away in office) Parker Joyce, Sweet Tart McKee (Omena’s first feline Mayor) and current Mayor Rosie Disch have all served with distinction.

Marianne Vick is donating a pet portrait of this year’s Mayor to the winner’s family to commemorate the event – see pictures below!

On Saturday, July 20, 2024 at 1:30 pm, all mayoral candidates, family, friends & the community are invited to the announcement and inauguration of the winner at an ice cream social in the Omena Presbyterian Church parking area.
