On May 6, 2013, the District Leaders of the Mamaroneck Village Democrats met at the home of party chair Elizabeth Saenger. They voted unanimously to elect a Nominating Committee to seek and select Democratic candidates for the positions of Mayor and Trustee in the general election in November 2013.
The committee will cast a wide net to attract talented residents who want to work hard and meet the challenges Mamaroneck faces head on. This committee will be led by Tom Murphy and Elizabeth Saenger. The committee urges members of the community interested in running for Mayor or Trustee on the Democratic ticket to contact Murphy or Saenger. They can be reached via email at email@example.com
We are writing to inform you of what happened at the Village of Mamaroneck’s December 10 Organizational Meeting. The swearing in of reelected Judge Daniel Gallagher and newly elected trustees, Andres Bermudez-Hallstrom, Ilissa Miller and Leon Potok proceeded smoothly, but the appointment of residents to some volunteer boards and commissions was met with opposition from Mayor Norman Rosenblum and Trustee Lou Santoro. Here is what transpired:
Election results have been certified by the Westchester County Board of Elections, and the swearing-in of Judge Gallagher and the Democratic Trustees has been rescheduled.
So without further ado ...
We are pleased to invite you to attend
the swearing-in ceremony of
the Village of Mamaroneck Elected Trustees
Andres Bermudez Hallstrom
Judge Dan Gallagher

A wine and cheese reception will follow
the regularly scheduled meeting.
We've been informed by the Village Manager that the Westchester County Board of Elections has not yet officially certified the results of last month's election.
For that reason, the swearing in of new members of the Board of Trustees cannot yet take place, and tonight's regularly scheduled organizational meeting has been postponed.
As soon as the meeting is rescheduled, we will let you know ... and invite you again to join us for a reception!
With this year’s campaign for Village of Mamaroneck Board of Trustees behind us — and Thanksgiving just ahead — we wanted to take the opportunity to express our deep gratitude for your support. We are honored by the votes you cast for us on election day, and humbled by the responsibility of representing your values on the Board of Trustees. We look forward to our new roles with great optimism.
The Board of Elections has released updated vote totals for our Village elections:

They've also posted the updated tally for the race for Village Justice:

Updated Nov. 30, 2012.
The Journal News reports that our Democratic team has won all three open seats on the Board of Trustees:
Updated numbers Friday from the Westchester County Board of Elections for the votes in Rye and Mamaroneck gave a clearer picture of the outcomes there.
In Mamaroneck, the Democrats running for the village board appear to have taken the three available seats, knocking Republican Michael Sudano out of the first place spot he held with incomplete results since election night.
Among the Democrats, Ilissa Miller received 3,310 votes, Leon Potok got 3,155 and Andres Hallstrom got 3,084. Sudano received 3,021 votes; Dennis Cucinella, another Republican, got 2,842; and George Belsito got 2,769, according to the Board of Elections.
This was another very close election, reminding us again that every single vote — for each candidate — is important. Thank you to all our friends and supporters!
