2014 Village Election Results

The results of the Farmingdale Village elections are in, and local voters have reelected incumbent trustees Cheryl Parisi and Patricia Christensen to another four year term in office.

 

According to Village Administrator Brian Harty, the results show Christensen received 508 votes, to hold onto her seat on the board. 

 

“I very much appreciate the support from our residents of the work the Village Board is doing and am extremely grateful that I have been given the privilege to serve for the next four years,” Christensen said.

 

Since village elections go to the highest two vote getters, the other board incumbent, Parisi, faced off against challenger Craig Rosasco.

 

Based on the results, Parisi received 496 votes—approximately 100 more than Rosasco, who received 397.

 

“I am proud and honored to be reelected to serve the Village I love for the next four years,” Parisi said. “Village residents have come out, showing their support by casting their vote, recognizing the direction that the team of Mayor Ralph Ekstrand, Trustees Pat Christiansen, Cheryl Parisi, Bill Barrett and Tom Ryan are guiding the Village towards.”

 

In an uncontested race, Village Justice Hon. Salvatore Nicosia won his bid for reelection with 580 total votes.

News

At a recent meeting of the Farmingdale Board of Education, school district superintendent John Lorentz discussed New York State’s proposal to invest $2 billion into districts statewide

through the Smart Schools Bond Act.

 

If approved by voters in the upcoming general elections, the act would allow the state to borrow $2 billion in the form of a capital bond to provide students with access to classroom

technology and high-speed internet connectivity, with the goal of equalizing opportunities for children to learn, adding classroom space, expanding pre-kindergarten programs, replacing classroom trailers with permanent instructional space and installing high-tech security features in schools. 

Over the weekend, thousands of Long Island residents flocked to the Village of Farmingdale for its 26th annual Columbus Day Weekend Fair and Fireman’s carnival. Running from Oct. 9

to 13, the five-day affair featured live music from Farmingdale’s own Electric Dudes and Long Island party band Superbad, a Fire Department barbecue, food vendors, a street fair, fireworks, carnival rides, games for kids of all ages and, of course, the Columbus Day parade.

The 2014 Reilly Cup finals featured the two most successful OTHG teams over the last 9 years. Sal’s Place and Singleton’s have had 11 finals appearances and 7 championships between them during this period of time. They split 2 games during the regular season and Singleton’s became the winner’s bracket representative in the 2014 Cup by beating Sal’s deep in the tournament.

 

Sal’s took the first game 14-7. The game was close until the 8th inning when Sal’s broke it open with some timely hits and taking advantage of a Singleton’s miscue or two.  Sal’s held

Singleton’s to 7 runs with outstanding all-around defense, which was particularly impressive given that some of their significant contributors were visibly fighting through late-season injuries.
