HASTINGS-ON-HUDSON, N.Y. In uncontested races, incumbent Nicola Armacost and former trustee Marge Apel were elected to the two open seats on the Hastings Board of Trustees and incumbent Joseph DiSalvo was reelected village justice on Tuesday night.
According to unofficial results from village clerk Susan Maggiotto, Armacost received 236 votes, Apel received 226 votes and DiSalvo received 260 votes.
"I'm thrilled and I hope that I'll be able to continue the work that I've been doing related to finances and budget and hopefully represent people in a way they feel is true to what they want," Armacost said.
Armacost was appointed to the board in 2009 and was elected in 2010. She works as a managing director at Arc Finance and has lived in the village since 2002.
"Whenever people approach me I try and take the issues that they raise up with the other trustees and not all of them are solvable, but as many of them as possible we try and make sure we get moved forward," Armacost said.
Apel has lived in the village since 1979 and previously served on the board for six years ending in 2007. Apel works as the director of career development at Manhattan College.
DiSalvo, a village resident since 1979, served as the acting justice, who fills in for the elected justice, from 1988 to 2004 and has been the elected justice since 2004. He was elected to his third consecutive four-year term. DiSalvo is a managing partner at Nobile, Magarian, DiSalvo, LLP.
All three candidates were nominated by the Hastings Democrats in the January caucus.
