Amityville Election Results

After a hard fought campaign race, Amityville political newcomer James Wandell won the highly coveted mayoral seat.  Mr. Wandell ran on a platform that unwise spending in the current administration caused village taxes to spiral out of control.  He defeated to current trustees, Peter Casserly and Edward Johnson. 

According to the Amityville First website, mayor-elect Wandell is commited to:
  • Repeal the current provision that gives full medical benefits to part-time elected officials. This will save village taxpayers more than $100,000 per year.
  • Reduce Mayor and Trustee salaries by 20%. Sacrifice begins at the top.
  • Revitalize our village. Incentivize new restaurants and businesses to relocate to Amityville. Guarantee free access to Amityville Beach for all village residents.
In other political news, Kevin Smith and Jessica Bernius won two trustee seats, defeating Joseph  Morin, Bruce Jenney, Charles Walters and Peter G. Himmelmann. 

Congratulations to Mr. Wandell!  We will hold you to your promises!
