Uncontested election sees three winners


The uncontested elections to pick a deputy mayor, a trustee and a village justice went off without a hitch on Tuesday, March 19, with all three incumbents winning re-election with more than 160 votes, according to village officials.

Deputy mayor Joseph Hennessy polled 160 votes to win his uncontested election.

Trustee John O’Brien got 168 votes, making him the top vote-getter in the election.

James Frankie, who was recently appointed as Malverne’s village justice following the death of James Dougherty won his election with 166 votes. His win gives him the two more years that remain of Dougherty’s term.

Mayor Pat McDonald and the other trustees have two more years in their terms before they have to stand for relection.
