Nyack, Dec 11 — It took multiple trips to court, 42 days of waiting and six challenged absentee votes to determine who would be the next Orangetown Supervisor. After the final ballots were counted today, incumbent Andy Stewart (D) was declared the winner by the slimmest of margins: two votes or .009%. Stewart received 6,163 votes to 6,161 for challenger Walter Wettje (R).
Rockland County, Nov 5 — County Legislator Ed Day (Pomona – R) will be Rockland’s next County Executive and Jen White (D) will return to Village Hall as Mayor of Nyack. And if challenger Walter Wettjen slim 36 vote lead holds up after absentee ballots are counted, the Pearl River Republican will replace Andy Stewart (Nyack – D) as Orangetown Supervisor.
Rockland County voters will go to the polls on Tues Nov 5 from 6a-9p to choose their first new County Executive in 20 years. Here are closing arguments from the Democratic and Republican candidates, David Fried and Ed Day.

In those moments, I felt deeply proud to be a part of a place so filled with compassion, generosity, and solidarity. That feeling holds true today, and it’s why I’m asking you to give me the honor of continuing to serve you as Mayor on Election Day, November 5, 2013.

It’s never surprising when city folk dis the suburbs. Ed Koch called suburban life “sterile.” The Times’ recently reported on “scruffy bohemians” from Brooklyn “colonizing” Nyack– in the Fashion section.
But voters in the burbs have strong opinions about city life too: 25% of all workers in Manhattan live in the suburbs. 40% of the NYPD lives outside the city.
When New York City gets a new Mayor, we do too.
