GREENBURGH, N.Y. -- Incumbency is alive and well in the Town of Greenburgh, where the 24-year town supervisor and his entire board was reelected on Tuesday unopposed.
The same held true in three of the six villages within the Town of Greenburgh on Tuesday: Voters in Ardsley, Dobbs Ferry and Irvington all elected village officials who ran unopposed this fall.
Notable among the re-elected incumbents is Paul Feiner, first elected Greenburgh town supervisor in 1991. Feiner, a Democrat, was unopposed by received nearly 6,000 votes on Tuesday, according to unofficial returns from the Westchester County Board of Elections.
Feiner's best known for his multiple daily email blasts to residents and reporters. He rides along with the town police chief on Halloween, shovels out sidewalks of shut-ins after snowstorms and comes up with new innovations such as portable digital traffic ticket signs . He recently volunteered to be a community advisor to Daily Voice, which profiled him on his 59th birthday here.
Greenburgh Democratic Town Board members S. Ken Jones and Kevin Morgan also ran unopposed, each receiving about 5,700 votes on Tuesday, according to unofficial tallies.
Also in the town of Greenburgh, Town Clerk Judith Beville, a Democrat, ran unopposed; as did three Democratic candidates for Town Justice: Arlene Oliver, Delores Brathwaite and Walter Rivera.
-- In the Village of Ardsley, voters re-elected Democratic Mayor Peter Porcino. Both Democratic candidates for Ardsley village trustee ran unopposed:: Mollie Monti and Andy DiJusto.

On Wednesday, Feiner announced he'd received more good news from the U.S. Department of Transportation's TIGER program. After Congress allocated additional money, the town may be eligible for money for new sidewalks along some of the busiest, most hazardous roads near schools, according to Feiner. Greenburgh will apply for more than $1 million in federal grants in next year's capital budget, he said.
"The safety of our children MUST be a very high priority,'' Feiner wrote in an email.
