MAMARONECK, N.Y. Nancy Seligson, who was sworn in as town supervisor with two other council members at the first town board meeting of 2012 Wednesday night, nominated Jaine Elkind Eney to fill the seat she vacates as the fourth council member.
The board unanimously approved the appointment, which comes as a result of Seligson vacating her four-year council seat halfway through to run for supervisor. Eney, who served as chair of the town's board of assessment review for 12 years, will finish that term. However, New York State law requires that she run for office in 2012 and, if she wins, again in 2014.
"I'm very proud and happy to nominate Jaine Elkin Eney to be a town board member," Seligson said. "She has proven to be a wonderful civic-minded, community-minded contributor."
Eney currently serves as trustee on the Village of Larchmont board. She will resign from the Larchmont board, then be sworn in at the next town board meeting Jan. 18.
In addition to Seligson, Democrats Abby Katz and Phllyis Wittner were sworn in as council members, Jean Marie Brescia as town justice, Christina Battalia as clerk and Cindy Atiencia and Linda Silvestre as deputy town clerks.
The board also made several appointments, including Wittner as deputy town supervisor, Town Administrator Stephen Altieri as budget officer, Anthony Siligato as comptroller and receiver of taxes, Battalia and Seligson as marriage officers, Battalia as registrar of vital statistics, among others.
"I'm delighted and excited to be the supervisor," said Seligson, who ran unopposed for the position. "We run a very good government in the Town of Mamaroneck and I think that's really recognized throughout the area. My number one goal is to continue that good government. We have a great staff under the leadership of the Town Administrator Stephen Altieri and I look forward to working with him."
