Incumbent Denise Ford defeated challenger Jeffrey Saxon in the Nassau County Legislative District 4 race Tuesday night.
Ford, a Republican, has been a legislator in the county since 2003. She received 66 percent of the vote, compared to 34 percent for Saxon.
Before the election, Ford said her priorities included seeing the Austin Boulevard road repair project through to fruition and to foster an open dialogue with the county assessor over the re-assessment issue.
Saxon, who works for the New York City Department of Correction, was seeking his first term in office.
