Nyack, Dec 9 — If you live in Nyack or any other Orangetown community and can’t understand why its taking so long to decide who won last month’s Supervisor election, there’s a 6 in 10 chance that you might be the cause of the delay. That’s because only 40 percent of the registered voters in Orangetown voted in the General Election. As of today, only three votes separate incumbent Andy Stewart (D) from challenger Walter Wettje (R). A judge will review 12 remaining challenged ballots this week to choose a winner.
Which brings us to Tuesday’s Fire District Election in Nyack. We support our volunteers with tax dollars, charitable donations, our grateful thanks and our collective thoughts and prayers for their safety. Isn’t their dedication to our community worth a few minutes of your time on Tuesday?
