TUCKAHOE, N.Y. - After staving off a Democratic challenger in this year’s village election, Tuckahoe Trustees Antonio Leo and Steve Alfasi have officially been sworn back into office.
Last month, Republican incumbent Trustees Leo and Alfasi easily won re-election over Anthony Fiore Jr., an auxiliary police officer and volunteer firefighter attempting to crack the all-Republican Board for the second straight year.
Last week, flanked by family and friends at a special ceremony, Alfasi and Leo were formally sworn in by Judge David Fuller Jr., to two-year terms that will see them offered an annual stipend of $5,075. In addition, Michael O’Toole was sworn in for a one-year term as acting Village Justice.
“I’d just like to express congratulations to Steve and Antonio on behalf of all of us on the town board for being elected to the position of trustee,” Eastchester Town Supervisor Anthony Colavita said. “Not everyone gets to the point of swearing in, once you do that, you know you’re in for some hard work.”
Village appointments continued this week, with Ann Marie Ciarmella, Eric Fang and Raymond Nerenberg being named to the Village Planning Board. Barbara Nieminem was appointed as the chairperson of the Sign and Awning Board, where she will be joined by Clare Gorman and Karen Campanile.
“Congratulations to the village of Tuckahoe on making a good choice,” Deputy Tuckahoe Mayor Tom Giordano added. “The two gentlemen remaining on this board add a lot to our dialogue and have a lot of insight that they lend to us to serve the best interests of our community and its people.”
