Greenburgh town supervisor seeking 15th term challenged by political newcomerPosted: Updated:
Greenburgh Town Supervisor Paul J. Feiner will have to stave off a challenge from political newcomer Lucas Cioffi if he hopes to stay in office for a 15th term.
Feiner, who has served in the role for 28 years, says he “knows what it takes to get the job done.”
“Every day is a new job,” he told News 12, saying that what’s at stake is too important to turn over to someone without experience.
Feiner says his priorities, should he get another term in office, include infrastructure, public safety, staying within the tax cap and managing the town more efficiently.
Cioffi is a software developer who says Greenburgh can “modernize” and “save money.” He’s a graduate of West Point and a combat veteran running as an independent on the Greenburgh Party line.
He says his top priorities include a freeze on town taxes, public input on budgets and term limits.
“It’s the first time [voters] have had a choice in 12 years,” says Cioffi. “Are they voting for Paul because they like Paul? Or are they voting for the Greenburgh line because it’s time to modernize and move forward.”
Early voting continues until Sunday ahead of Election Day on Tuesday, Nov. 5.
