Sullivan wins Malverne mayor's election. How he did it might surprise you.


Village of Malverne Trustee Tim Sullivan received 1,310 votes, to Deputy Mayor Perry Cuocci’s 687, in the election for mayor Tuesday night. Incumbent Mayor Keith Corbett did not seek re-election.

Scott Edwards received 1,259 votes for trustee, and Carl Prizzi garnered 1,125. Both will serve four-year terms. Brian Lewis had 769 votes. Trustee Lori Lang, who was appointed to the board last month, ran uncontested and received 1,202 votes. Judge Jim Frankie also ran uncontested, and collected 1,635 votes.

Sullivan said he was faced with a choice this election — how to run a campaign in modern politics. Ultimately, he decided to go old school.

“We went traditional,” he said. “We went real, real basic. No social media. We ran a positive campaign. We didn’t accuse anyone of anything. We ran on our own merits.”
