Arthur Cusano reports in the Register-Star that Greenport will replay the 2011 election for town supervisor in 2015. Edward Nabozny, of the Independence Party, is being backed by Democrats against incumbent Republican John Porreca. And Nabozny, 66, was supervisor before from 2010 to 2011, but was beat by Porreca in 2012 by eight votes. “So, every vote counts,” Nabozny said. Tim Shook will seek the Democratic nomination for supervisor. Incumbent Councilman Robert Pendergast is stepping down after a four-year term, and will become the Greenport Republican Party chairman. “It’s going to be a tough race but Porreca’s done an excellent job,” he said. “We’re hoping for a clean sweep.” John Mausholf, a corrections officer, is seeking Pendergast’s seat. Incumbern Councilman Keith Mortefolio is also running again, with 14 years already on the board. Democrats Guy Apacella and George Super are also running for town board seats. Democrats also endorsed Town Justice Francis Abitabile and incumbent Greenport Highway Superintendent Mark Gaylord, from the Independence Party. Republicans endorsed Glen Graziano for the town justice seat and Greenport Fire Department Assistant Chief John Onfrychuck for the highway superintendent seat.
