Yorktown supervisor race overshadowed by stolen sign controversy

The race for Yorktown supervisor is getting overshadowed by the growing controversy over stolen campaign signs.

Yorktown police say a campaign sign for Democratic supervisor candidate Don Peters was among those taken from in front of the Seven Stars Restaurant in Shrub Oak last week. Monday, a charge of petty larceny was filed against Patty Malone, assistant to Republican incumbent Supervisor Linda Cooper. Police have also charged 49-year old Seth Hochberg, a friend of Cooper's, with petty larceny.

Cooper has charged the complaints against Malone and Hochberg are politically motivated. Peters says he believes any allegations of criminal activity should be fully prosecuted.
