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.

Farmingdale village officials will be holding a public hearing on Dec. 1, to reexamine school speed zones throughout the village, in order to establish a consistent school speed zone limit. 

Holidays Increase Daily Congestion 

While parking around LIRR train stations is typically a challenge, even on a regular work day, the holidays create more of a struggle for commuters in search of parking spots. LIRR spokesman Salvatore Arena said that ridership between Thanksgiving and New Year’s Day increases by at least 10 percent; last year it was by 12 percent. Though the MTA is adding more trains to the schedule, that doesn’t ease the parking situation, which is operated not by the LIRR, but by individual municipalities in each town. 

 

“Every station is different,” Arena said. “A good part of our parking is in the hands of the locality. They set the rules essentially.”

There is simply no better way for runners and their families to celebrate the Holiday Season than by being part of the fun at the Carter, DeLuca, Farrell & Schmidt Holiday 5 Kilometer Run, and on Saturday morning, Dec. 20, the Run will be celebrating its 27th anniversary edition at the John F. Kennedy Middle School in Bethpage. The run will start at 9:30 a.m. on Broadway in Bethpage.
