Daughney, Episcopia win runoff elections in Garden City

Incumbent Garden City Village trustees Brian C. Daughney and Nicholas P. Episcopia won their runoff elections in the Estates and Eastern sections of the village on Tuesday.

The runoff winners will represent the Community Agreement Party in the general elections on March 20, when they will be on the village-wide ballot to serve two-year terms, effective April 1.

In their bids for re-election, Daughney defeated his challenger, Michele Harrington, by a vote of 398-349 in the Estates runoff election. Episcopia overcame his challenger, former village trustee Jon Segerdahl, by a vote of 463-373 in the East runoff.

“I promise to continue to focus on the important issues facing all of our residents, and to work diligently to maintain our services and programs at the lowest possible cost,” Episcopia, who is the second deputy mayor, said in a statement.

Daughney also celebrated his victory, thanked his supporters and reiterated he would continue to practice fiscal vigilance.

“I am focused on preserving choices with respect to the services and facilities that residents’ want,” Daughney said in a statement.

In the Western section, trustee John Watras, the deputy mayor, was not opposed. Neither was trustee Andrew Cavanaugh in the Central section.

The general elections will take place at Village Hall, on 351 Stewart Ave., from noon to 9 p.m.
