On Tuesday, March 18, only one village in the Roslyn area, Roslyn Estates, had contested board of trustee elections.
In that village, three candidates were vying for two Board of Trustee seats, each with a two-year term.
Dr. Sandy Siff, the only incumbent, took one of those seats, winning 68 votes. The top vote-getter was Brian Feingold, who won the other seat with 74 votes. Hal J. Pasetsky came in third with 29 votes.
During the campaign, Feingold touted his experience as a director and treasurer of the Roslyn Estates Civic Association. He also placed an emphasis on improving the village's quality of life with a focus on neighborhood safety, beautification, plus improved roads and services.
Dr. Sandy Siff highlighted his own achievements as a board member, including his opposition to tax increases, conducting a traffic safety study, a review of trees on village property, and having Roslyn Estates as the first village in New York State to utilize Wind Power to provide energy for the village.
In Roslyn Harbor, Yvette Edidin was elected mayor, having the task of replacing Gerson Strassberg, who is retiring after 36 years on the village board. In that village, trustees Louis Badolato and Eric Schuster faced no opposition while on the way to re-election.
In East Hills, trustees Linda Nathanson and Manny Zuckerman were re-elected for four-year terms each, while in Roslyn Village, Deputy Mayor Marshall Bernstein and trustee Craig Westergard will return to the board for another two years.
