Peekskill Democratic Primary Sept 12!

Don’t forget to vote in the primaries! Find your polling place here.

From an article on Patch with info on all primaries throughout Westchester:

Topping the races is the contentious fight for Peekskill Common Council. There are five people vying for three lines on the Democratic ballot in November, and two of them are running on the GOP slate.

The five seeking the Democratic lines:

    Robert M. Sullivan
    Colin D. Smith
    Ramon A. Fernandez
    Luis A. Segarra
    Vanessa B. Agudelo

Segarra and Sullivan are running mates, picked by the Peekskill Republican Committee to run on its “Peekskill United” slate. Their entry into the race, forcing a Democratic Primary, caused fury among city Democrats. It led to the usual intra-party in-fighting following New York State’s arcane election laws.
