Port Washington police commish wins sixth term

James B. Duncan, 66, has defeated an 18-year-old opponent and a write-in candidate to win a sixth term as Port Washington police commissioner.

Duncan, a retired police officer, got 514 votes in Tuesday’s election, district officials said.
Duncan said he was “ecstatic” about winning. “It was a good race, very clean. The young man did very well for a first-time” candidate, he said.

Paul Nickolaus Faulk, a community college student, won 200 votes. The son of two Port Washington Police District officers, Faulk campaigned on using state and federal grants to keep taxes low.

A write-in candidate, Thomas Rice, also garnered 200 votes.

The board is made up of three commissioners, who get an annual stipend of $16,000 each.
