The Boathouse in Ossining came alive with cheers as the Democratic candidates' families, friends and supporters gathered to watch last night's results come in. The Ossining Democratic Party is calling the election an incredible clean sweep.
Last night the Ossining Democrat Party declared Catherine Borgia the winner of the 9th District race.
“I’m profoundly grateful,” said Borgia. “I did expect it, but I’m profoundly grateful it happened. I feel like it isn’t over yet. I feel grateful and pleased, and I will do my best.”
The Ossining Democrats also declared that Sue Donnelly was victorious in her quest to succeed Borgia as town supervisor.
“I want to thank everyone from the bottom of my heart. This was a tough race. It is such a relief to have this done,” said Donnelly. “Now it's time to move Ossining forward.”
In addition to declaring Democratic wins for the county's 9th district and town supervisor positions, the Democrats also say they won seats on the Village Board of Trustees, the Ossining Town Council and in the town justice race.
"It feels great," said Robert Daraio who ran for a seat on the Village Board of Trustees. "We all have a lot of hard work to do and I am looking forward to serving the people of Ossining."
“I’m very proud of the campaign I ran against two very strong opponents,” said Michael Tawil. “I’m happy that the people of Ossining have recognized the good work I have done in the last three years. I look forward to serving the people of Ossining for the next four years. I would like to thank the voters.”
