Fried, McCarthy, Raviolo and Mangialardi Win Judicial Races
Of the three contested town justice races only one incumbent judge was defeated.
Republican attorney Gary Raviolo beat Democratic incumbent Ilan Gilbert in the Yorktown town justice race 54 percent to 46 percent.
In Cortlandt, Justice Daniel McCarthy was able to hold on to his seat against challenger Frank Priolo by winning 57 percent of the vote.
Justice John Fried easily won one of the two justice seats in contention for the new Ossining regional court. Garnering 48 percent of the vote, the judge who was appointed to the town court in March, has won his first election.
The second seat, which will fill the third justice seat in the newly consolidated court between Ossining’s village and town governments, was won by Briarcliff resident John Mangialardi, a Republican who was an assistant district attorney before having a private practice.
Mangialardi beat out Ossining Town Councilman Michael Tawil, a Democrat, who decided that instead of running for re-election for a seat on the town board, he would seek one of the justice positions in the town court.
Mangialardi has 26 percent of the votes for town justice and Tawil has 25 percent of the votes. With only 96 votes in between the two 93 percent of the districts have been tallied.
