2015 Election Results

Thursday, November 12th, 2015

Election Day in Westchester had some highs and lows, including several young candidates winning: Mt Vernon City Councilman & Mayor-Elect Richard Thomas, New Rochelle City Councilman & former WYD Vice President Jared Rice, Yonkers City Councilman & WYD Board Member Christopher Johnson, Ossining Village Trustee-Elect & WYD Board Member Quantel Bazemore. WYD Member Christine Peters also had a strong but ultimately unsuccessful showing in her campaign for County Legislature. That loss was mirrored by a very close race against Sheila Marcotte and the loss of Peter Harckham’s seat, leaving the Democrats on the Board of Legislators with a slim 9-8 majority. In such a low turnout year, never forget that your vote counts!
