Comptroller Walker to remain in Mt. Vernon mayoral race
Mount Vernon Comptroller Maureen Walker confirmed today that she will stay in the mayoral race against former Mayor Ernie Davis.
Walker lost the Democratic primary race to Davis by 101 votes. Her name will remain on the November ballot on the Conservative line.
The city comptroller claims that the primary race was stolen from her and that her supporters are urging her to continue on in the race.
Walker and Davis each got about a third of the primary vote, with incumbent Mayor Clinton Young a distant third. Political analyst Tony Sayegh says the race is wide open.
