YORKTOWN, NY - Supervisor Michael Grace, Town Justice Sal Lagonia, and County Legislator John Testa are expected to seek re-election in November, according to Serafina Mastro, chair of the Yorktown Republican Town Committee.
The committee is expected to officially endorse the trio at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday at Murphy's Restaurant, 355 Kear St.
The committee also has started its search for candidates to take on County Legislator Mike Kaplowitz (D-Somers) and Town Council member Vishnu Patel (D-Yorktown), and to fill the highway superintendent opening. The position will be left vacant by Eric DiBartolo, who decided not to seek re-election after 16 years.
Interviews for other offices will be conducted publicly in March, with further endorsements by the committee to follow in April, Mastro said.
"We welcome any interested candidate with the same beliefs of smaller and more affordable government to submit their resumes for consideration by the committee," she said. "This is a great way to experience the democratic process as well as serve your neighbors and community."
Prospective candidates may apply by sending a copy of their resume and a cover letter to the committee. The deadline to apply is Feb. 21. The interviews will be conducted in March and will be followed by a vote of the committee to officially endorse its candidates.
All interested candidates are being asked to email a cover letter and resume to email@example.com or by mail to PO Box 1244, Yorktown Heights, NY 10598. Any questions can be directed to Mastro at 914-497-7460.
