Voters in Yonkers and Mount Vernon re-affirmed their desire for bipartisan, cooperative government on Tuesday when they elected David Tubiolo to the Board of Legislators by a 62%-38% margin.  Legislator-Elect Tubiolo replaces retiring Legislator Bernice Spreckman who represented District 14 since 1995.

The special election was held in accordance with the Westchester County Charter which calls for the election to take place within 90 days of the date the seat was vacated.  Voter turnout was higher than expected.

Following the election, Minority Leader, Legislator John Testa (R) Peekskill said, “Congratulations to David Tubiolo on a well-run and hard-working campaign. Having David join us at the BOL will ensure the continuation of the Bi-Partisan Coalition that has been so successful in keeping spending down and taxes flat. The real winners today were the taxpayers and citizens of Westchester County.”

Board of Legislators Vice-Chairman Jim Maisano (R) New Rochelle said, “I commend Christine Peter’s and David Tubiolo on running positive, issues-oriented campaigns.  I welcome Mr. Tubiolo as a colleague at the Board of Legislators. David has indicated that he is eager to be a part of the bipartisan coalition and that is good news for the residents of Westchester County and district 14.”
County Executive Rob Astorino said, “I congratulate Legislator-Elect David Tubiolo on his hard-won victory.  David and his opponent ran positive campaigns which they should be proud of.  I know David will be a valuable member of the bipartisan coalition on the Board of Legislators."
