Pleasantville woman aims to be 1st Democrat in 30 years on town councilPosted: Updated:
A Pleasantville woman is looking to become the first Democrat in 30 years to serve on the Mount Pleasant Town Board.
Francesca Hagadus-McHale is running for the first time against Anthony Amiano.
Amiano, 24, was appointed to the position in May to fill a seat vacated by then-councilman Mark Rubeo.
Amiano says if elected, he'll continue to build upon the town's redevelopment plans.
Hagadus-McHale says she wants a chance to offer change in the traditionally Republican-held council.
The candidate who wins the election will have to run again next year for a four-year term. This is the only race this year in the town of Mount Pleasant.
