Village of Ossining Mayor Victoria Gearity defeated Trustee Omar Herrera in a pivotal Democratic Party primary last night.
Gearity, who is seeking a third two-year term in November, received 1,305 votes (55%) to 1,086 for Herrera (45%) in a spirited campaign.
The two will be squaring off again on November 6 as Herrera as vowed to stay in the race.
“I believe it is incredibly important for Ossining voters to have a choice at the polls. Because of this, I will absolutely continue my campaign should I not win the Democratic primary,” Herrera said last week. “I am honored to have received the endorsement of the Working Families Party, and will be on the November ballot on this party line regardless of the outcome in the Democratic primary next week.”
