Scarsdale residents head to polls to vote for mayor

Residents of the village of Scarsdale flooded the library Tuesday to vote for a new mayor.



Dan Hochvert ran on the Scarsdale Citizens Non-Partisan Party ticket, a party News 12 was told had only been opposed three times in the past 106 years.



Hochvert's opponent, Robert Berg, ran with the newly formed Scarsdale Voters Choice Party.



Berg said long-term affordability is why he went against the grain and ran against the popular party.



"The empty nesters that support this whole system, they can't afford to live here anymore," he said.



Berg said property taxes have increased by twice the rate of inflation and that people can't afford it.
