The five villages that are part of the Manhasset zip code held their board elections on Tuesday, March 20. The Incorporated Villages of Flower Hill, Plandome, Plandome Heights and Plandome Manor all had uncontested elections with a light voter turnout.
The Incorporated Village of Munsey Park had a much higher voter turnout. Early morning campaigning was done on the corner of Munsey Park Elementary with students carrying signs to vote for Noone, Sabino and Turano. Emails were being sent to village residents as well as postings online on Manhasset Facebook pages. The message was clear—go out and vote—and residents used their inalienable right to make their voices heard at the ballot box.
John Turano, the village justice, ran unopposed and received 461 votes out of the nearly 600 ballots cast. Trustee Jennifer Noone was reelected with 321 votes, and Anthony Sabino received 316 votes, edging out candidates Brian Dunning and Nathy Yakaitis, who each received 275 and 269 votes, respectively.
“I wish to express my deepest thanks to all who voted, especially my friends, for their support and encouragement during the course of this election,” said newly elected Munsey Park Trustee Anthony Sabino. “I will endeavor mightily to live up to the trust and confidence that you have so graciously placed in me.”
“I am grateful for the residents’ vote of confidence and look forward to continuing my duties as their trustee,” said Munsey Park Trustee Jennifer Noone.
