Sheila Marcotte, a Republican Eastchester Town Councilwoman, has won the special election in the 10th County Legislative District, defeating Democratic candidate Greg Varian. Ms. Marcotte will fill the unexpired term of Vito Pinto, who resigned to accept an appointed position with the County Executive.

The 10th County Legislative District includes Eastchester, Tuckahoe and roughly half of New Rochelle. While Mr. Varian carried New Rochelle comfortably, Ms. Marcotte won Eastchester and Tuckahoe by wider margins and achieved a solid victory overall.

I supported Mr. Varian, but Ms. Marcotte deserves congratulations, and I look forward to working with her to advance the interests of our community.
