6 candidates set to face off in Yonkers mayoral race
Primary Vote 2011 has arrived in full force, with six candidates sparring to replace Yonkers Mayor Phil Amicone, who can't run again because of the city's term limits law.
In the Democratic primary, businessman Robert Flower is facing current City Council President Chuck Lesnick and Assemblyman Mike Spano. All candidates agree that getting the Yonkers School District back on track after last year's budget crisis is a priority.
For the Republican Party, all three candidates are well-known to city voters. Former City Councilman Carlo Calvi has decided to re-enter politics, challenging former City Council President Richard Martinelli and Councilman John Murtagh.
The crowded mayoral race will be slimmed down after voters head to the polls tomorrow.
