Greenburgh Elections 2011: News You Can Use

The 2011 Greenburgh elections take place Tuesday. Here is a recap of the candidates.

Town Supervisor : Incumbent Paul Feiner is running uncontested for his 11th term in office. He looks to increase revenue in the town by bringing in new businesses. He is endorsed by the Democratic, Working Families and Independent parties.

Town Council : Incumbent Kevin Morgan and newcomer Ken Jones are both running unopposed, all but guaranteeing their seats on the town board. In his past term, Morgan's lifelong Greenburgh residency allowed him to be the liaison between the town and villages, the police department and the department of public works. Jones brings expertise in law, and looks to lower the tax burden, strengthen the Theodore D. Young Community and make the town more environmentally-friendly. They are both endorsed by the Democratic, Working Families and Independent parties.

Town Clerk : Current clerk Judith Beville won the primaries against challenger Sherron Fantauzzi by more than 60 percent. Beville's past term was focused on organizing the town's records system, providing more services with fewer resources and organizing events for the community. Fantauzzi, a board member of Theodore D. Young Community Center, is interested in a "hands-on approach" to the job.

Town Justice : In the primaries, two of the three incumbents were defeated for their seats. Arlene Gordon-Oliver, who became a town justice in 2007, was a winner in the primaries, alongside challengers Delores Brathwaite and Walter Rivera. Incumbents Doris Friedman, a justice since 1999,  and Sandra Forster, a justice since 2000, and challenger Bonnie Orden collectively received less than 45 percent of the votes. Several officials are seeking a change in the town justice line up due to court problems.

Polls are open from 6 a.m. to 9 p.m. Some places where residents can vote are the Greenburgh Public Library, Virginia Road School, the Greenburgh Housing Authority and Edgemont High School.
