SOMERS, N.Y. – Somers residents voting in Tuesday’s Independence primary election will see candidates vie for two seats on the town board and for the role of supervisor.
Harvey Kriedberg and Christopher Foley are seeking the Independence Party nods to run for two available seats on the Somers Town Board. Independence voters can also opt to vote for a write-in candidate.
In May, Somers Supervisor Mary Beth Murphy announced she would not seek re-election to the post she held for 15 years. Murphy is instead running for the Westchester County Clerk seat.
Christine Robbins is running for Somers town supervisor on the Independence ballot. There is also a write-in option.
County Legislator and Majority Leader Peter Harckham of North Salem is running on the Independence ticket to keep his District 2 seat on the Westchester County Board of Legislators. Voters also have the option of writing in a candidate for the District 2 seat, which represents Bedford, Lewisboro, Mount Kisco, North Salem, Pound Ridge and Somers.
Notably, council member Rick Morrissey, Anthony Cirieco and William Faulkner are campaigning as write-in candidates.
The primary election will be held Sept. 10.
Polls for the primary election open at 6 a.m. and close at 9 p.m. Check the Westchester Board of Elections website for information about polling locations.
This year’s general election will be held Nov. 5.
