We are part of The Trust Project


Two incumbents on the Croton Village Board of Trustees retained their seats Tuesday with decisive victories over two members of the independent Croton United team.

Democrats Ann Gallelli and Brian Pugh who also appeared on the Working Families, Independence and Women’s Equality Party lines in their quest to earn another two-year term, earned tallies of 2,303 and 2,388, with 99% of the votes tabulated.

Mark Aarons and Dan McNatty, who have never held elected office, received 1,293 and 1,284 votes respectively.

Gallelli has been active in the village since the 1980’s, serving on the Board of Trustees several times over three decades. She also served twice as chairwoman of the village Planning Board. She was a founding member of the Water Control Commission and Chair of the Comprehensive Plan Committee which developed the village’s 2003 “Master Plan” which currently serves as the guideline for the village’s land­ use.

Prior to his election to the Village Board in 2014, Pugh helped lead a successful 2011 campaign to move village’s elections from March to November to increase turnout and save taxpayer dollars. He graduated from the evening division of the Fordham University School of Law and was awarded the Addison M. Metcalf Labor Law Prize in 2015.
