Three-way battle to be decided in Eastchester town supervisor race
In one of the most interesting races of the year, two Republicans, including the Westchester County GOP leader, and one Democrat are battling for the seat of Eastchester town supervisor. There can only be one victor, but so far, nobody has any idea what the results will look like.Two months ago, Tony Colavita, an attorney and member of the Eastchester Town Board, defeated incumbent Jim Cavanaugh for the Republican nomination for town supervisor. Cavanaugh, who has been Eastchester's supervisor for the past 10 years, is also the chairman of the Westchester County GOP, so it came as a surprise to many when he decided to run against his fellow party member for the supervisor position.Cavanaugh was criticized by some for running against a member of the political party that he leads, but in this election, Cavanaugh is running on the Independence and Conservative party lines. Despite the controversy, Cavanaugh says he is confident that he will be re-elected. Colavita is hoping for another victory after defeating Cavanaugh for the GOP nomination in September.However, the battle between the two conservative candidates may give Democrat P.J. Denning the edge he needs. Denning, a member of the Tuckahoe Village Board, says people are sick and tired of the back and forth bickering between Republicans, and he is looking forward to victory as well.The polls will be open until 9:00 Tuesday night.
