MAHOPAC, N.Y.— Incumbent Councilman Frank Lombardi and newcomer Mike Barile have been nominated by the Carmel Republican Committee to run for Town Board this fall.
The Committee held its caucus Tuesday night to name its candidates for Town Board and the County Legislature.
Incumbent Councilwoman Suzy McDonough failed to secure a nomination. According to Anthony Scannapieco, Jr., chair of the Republican Carmel Town Committee and the Republican Election Commissioner for Putnam County, Lombardi received 44 votes, Barile received 34, McDonough garnered 32 and Anthony DiCarlo, a former town councilman and former county legislator, received 12.
However, Scannapieco said the candidates who didn’t receive the committee’s nomination could still force a primary for a GOP slot on the November ballot by filing a petition with signatures representing at least 5 percent of the registered Republican voters.
The committee also nominated newcomer Amy Sayegh to run for the County Legislature District 8 seat. Sayegh topped incumbent Dini LoBue by a 14-10 margin. District 8 includes parts of Mahopac.
