Democratic Party Claims Victory in Ossining

The Democratic party is claiming victory in what they consider a clean sweep election.

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.”

The Democratic Party's sweep of last night's election is not absolutely certain as all the results need to be confirmed by the County Board of Elections, Nonetheless, Catherine Borgia, Sue Donnelly, Eric Blaha, Jeff Harter, Manny Quezada, Bob Dario Mike Tawill,John Fried, Mike, O'Connor and Mary Ann Roberts are to be congratulated along with their supporters and the many people in the Town and Village of Ossining of all political persuasions who went to the polls and voted. I also take this opportunity to commend Mr. Steve Dewey who as in past elections comported himself in the best past traditions of his party.

I'm sorry I was not clear- I am very grateful for my victory and all th people who helped me win. When I meant was that I "expected" results, I was talking about the supervisor's race; I spoke to Holly right after they announced Sue Donnelly's victory. My fault for not being clear!

62 votes is not exactly a sweep

The tactics used by the republican party in Ossining, the positions they took and the "quality of the candidates" should send a message to the leadership that this will be and has been rejected by the residents.. The Dems took every seat, a clean SWEEP of all spots. Maybe next time the personal attacks will stop, the candidates will conduct themselves in a civil manner and they will stick to real issues. PT voting NO on every issue does not demean the current board but it does say volumes about the individual who thinks that this is an acceptable means of governing. His lack of productivity should result in the voters tossing him next time and getting someone in to office who can bring something to the table, someone who can be productive. PT's little foot stamping pitty party pouts and endless whining are comical but not an effective means of taking care of business for the residents of the Town.

Congrats to who were victorious in this election. Do not understand how a candidate could have around 1500 votes one day, next day around 1200.
