TARRYTOWN, N.Y. – Incumbents in Tarrytown and Sleepy Hollow face no competitors Tuesday in the annual village elections.
Sleepy Hollow Mayor Ken Wray, along with newcomer Glenn Rosenbloom and trustees Bruce Campbell and Evelyn Stupel, will run unopposed for the Board of Trustees. The four candidates have been endorsed by the Sleepy Hollow Democratic Party.
Sleepy Hollow Village Justice Andre Valdespino is also running unopposed.
Tarrytown Mayor Drew Fixell is running for re-election with fellow trustees Doug Zollo, Rebecca McGovern and Thomas Butler. The candidates are running on the Democratic and Tarrytown United party lines.
Trustees in both villages serve two-year terms. Valdespino will serve another four-year term.
Candidates in both villages have noted upcoming challenges, such as the Tappan Zee Bridge construction and the General Motors redevelopment project.
“It's been my privilege to represent you as mayor for the past four years,” Wray said when nominated, adding “there's so much to be done, so much unfinished business.”
“I think this is an extraordinary time in terms of the opportunity to grow and develop this village as we move into the next couple of years,” he said.
Fixell says in his campaign platform that he hopes the village can “continue to seek new and more effective ways to provide essential services, protect our local environment, and keep our taxes as low as possible.”
