OSSINING, N.Y. -- Ossining residents will be voting on village and town board seats when they head to the polls on Election Day Tuesday.

Democrat Dana Levenberg is being challenged by John Perillo, who is running on the Conservative line, for Town Supervisor. Current Supervisor Sue Donnelly is not running for re-election.

Levenberg is running with Karen D'Attore and Elizabeth Feldman, who are running for town board. Perillo is running with town board candidates Michael Milner and Aaron Spring.

Levenberg has been an Ossining resident since 1997 and previously served multiple roles on the PTA. She co-founded and serves as president of the Ossining MicroFund, which helps members of the Ossining community with small interest-free loans to overcome onetime obstacles.

In 2006, Levenberg was elected to the Ossining Board of Education and served for three terms. In 2008, Levenberg became communications director for Assemblywoman Sandy Galef and was later promoted to chief of staff.

Perillo is a lifelong Ossining resident who previously served as mayor of Ossining. As mayor, Perillo established Richard Wishnie Park and Arthur Jones Park.

Perillo also touts his village-wide beautification program, village-wide signage program and the new aquatic facility at the Caputo Community Center. 

The former mayor previously served on the planning board, architectural review board, zoning board of appeals, school board and village board.

"I am well versed in municipal law and municipal administration," Perillo said. "I have prepared and reviewed budgets; I have negotiated contracts. I am a uniter not a divider when it comes to serving the public."

Perillo said the most pressing issue facing the town is the reassessment of over 10,000 properties. He also wants to reestablish cooperation and communication with the Village of Briarcliff Manor and Town of Ossining.

"Sharing services is important," Perillo said. 

For village trustee, Democrat incumbents Manuel Quezada and Democrat Quantel Bazemore are running unopposed, while Democrat incumbent Rika Levin is being challenged by Republican Luke Carbonaro to fill an unexpired term.
