Nicholas LaLota won't run again for Amityville Village trustee

Suffolk County Republican Election Commissioner Nicholas LaLota says he will not seek re-election as an Amityville Village trustee in March after serving six years.

LaLota said he decided to step aside from the $7,000-a-year village position to concentrate on his studies at Hofstra University School of Law.

LaLota's decision comes as Michael O’Neill, a Zoning Board of Appeals member, is running as the Amity United for All Party candidate. O’Neill is a retiree and a captain in the village fire department. He will run with incumbent trustee Thomas Whelan.

Correction: Due to an editing error, a prior version of this story misstated the party line on which Michael O'Neill' is running for Amityville Village trustee.
