Port Chester voters will choose among 10 people as they fill the six trustee seats in the March 19 election. John Reavis and Gene Ceccarelli entered the race as independent candidates this week, adding to the other party slates.
This is Port Chester’s second election using cumulative voting, and the ballot reflects a revised strategy on the part of each political party. Democrats and Republicans limited their slates to three names in the hope of “plumping” votes. (Last time the GOP had six nominees, the Democrats, four.)
The party lines are listed here. Reavis, 77, is running for trustee for the first time. He ran for Rye Town council in November 2011. See this post for the other candidates and slates, and the Port Chester Votes page for information about the election and the cumulative voting system.
Running for mayor are incumbent Dennis Pilla and challenger Neil Pagano. The mayor’s race is unaffected by cumulative voting and occurs every two years. The trustee race happens every three years.
