TUCKAHOE, N.Y. - Voters head to the polls on Tuesday in Tuckahoe, as a group of candidates attempt to unseat three longtime Republican incumbents that are seeking re-election.
Mayor Steve Ecklond, and Trustees Tom Giordano and Greg Luisi are each seeking their fourth consecutive term in office, though they will be challenged by Democratic mayoral candidate Anthony Fiore - who unsuccessfully made runs at a trustee position the past two years - and a group of candidates that have labelled themselves as the Tuckahoe Independents.
Led by Melba Caliano, Jessica Cioffoletti and Sara DeRise, the Tuckahoe Independents have claimed they were “concerned enough to protect Tuckahoe by attending public village and Planning Board meetings,” dating back to last year.
Polls will be open beginning at 7 a.m. and extending through 9 p.m. Those looking to cast their votes can do so at the Tuckahoe Community Center on Columbus Avenue.
