Testa Defeats Jackson In District 1 Westchester Legislator Race

UPDATED 12:35 a.m.

WESTCHESTER COUNTY, N.Y. -- With 46 out of 54 districts reporting, incumbent John Testa holds a commanding lead in the race for Westchester county legislator in District 1  against Buchanan Trustee Duane Jackson.

Testa, a Republican, leads 60 percent to 40 percent over Jackson, a Democrat.

"I am very pleased and thankful the voters in District 1 re-elected me in such an overwhelming way," Testa said. "It seems like every election I win by a larger margin. I am looking forward to two more years of helping the citizens."

Testa said his constituents can expect him to continue working lowering taxes and reducing spending.

"I am a hard working public servant," Testa said. "I am known as someone who is always available and works hard."

Testa said County Executive Robert Astorino's re-election was tremendous.

"It sends a message that the citizens of Westchester appreciate and agree with his policies," Testa said. "It wasn't about party or registration."

District 1 includes Peekskill, Cortlandt and Yorktown.
