Amicone and Farmer win nominations for Yonkers mayor

Seven candidates for Yonkers mayor were hoping to have their name on the November ballot. Yonkers Mayor John Spencer will be leaving office after serving two terms. Term limits have prevented him from running again. Three Republicans and four Democrats vied for the chance to run in the general election. Unofficial results show Deputy Mayor Philip Amicone has won the Republican nomination for Yonkers mayor, defeating state Assemblyman Mike Spano and City Council President Vincenza Restiano. In the four-way Democratic primary, former schools Superintendent Joseph Farmer led with 34 percent, compared with 29percent for former Yonkers Democratic Chairwoman Pauline Galvin.Click here for a complete list of the results.
