Sea Cliff's Candidates Field Questions
Interested voters were able to meet the Sea Cliff candidates on Feb. 28, in North Shore High School thanks to the efforts of the Sea Cliff Civic Association and moderator John Canning. Election day is March 20 with the mayor's position and two seats on the board of trustees available in what will be a rare vote for Sea Cliff, a one party town for almost two generations. Voters will chose their candidates from three parties; the Civic Progress Party, the New Village Party and the Our Town Party. Civic Progress is running incumbent Claudia Moyne for mayor; incumbent Eileen Kennedy for trustee and political newcomer Paul Marchese for trustee. The New Village Party candidates are Dom Candido for mayor; and Seth Eschen and Alex Terentiev for trustee. Our Town Party candidate Eve Haim is running alone for a seat on the board of trustees.
Campaign Comes to Board Meeting
The upcoming March 20 Sea Cliff election will serve as a watershed event as it will be the first multi-party election in Sea Cliff's history. The campaign has already created a stir in the village, most recently focused upon a newspaper distributed by the New Village Party which has garnered a plethora of favorable reviews among residents. During the public comment portion of the March 5 Village Board meeting, the village's zoning board of appeals chairman and Civic Progress Party executive committee member, George Bevad, referred to the newspaper mailed to all Sea Cliff residents by the New Village Party.
