Only incumbents run in three Port village races

Only incumbents run in three Port village races

Three Port Washington villages are holding elections for multiple political offices in March, but only incumbents are running and all are unopposed.

The villages of Flower Hill, Baxter Estates and Port Washington North are holding elections on March 21.

Flower Hill residents will be voting for the positions of three trustees, currently held by Frank Genese, Max Frankel and Mary Jo Collins.

Baxter Estates has three offices up for election: Mayor Nora Haagenson, Trustee Maria Branco and Deputy Mayor Charles Comer. 

Haagenson has been in office since 2015. She served as a village trustee prior to becoming mayor from 2011-2015.

The Baxter Estates election will be held at the village hall, at 315 Main St. in Port Washington. Polling will begin at noon and the village hall will close at 9 p.m.

Port Washington North residents will also be voting on the offices of the mayor and two trustees. The candidates currently filling those offices are Mayor Robert Weitzner, Trustee Matthew Kepke and Trustee Andrea Scheff.

Weitzner has held his office as mayor since 2003, with a brief stint as deputy mayor from 2004-2005. He served as a trustee from 2002-2004.

All nine offices that are up for election involve two-year terms.

Residents who have lived in the villages for more than 30 days prior to the election are eligible to vote.

Residents eligible to vote can register in person at the Nassau County Board of Elections on the fifth floor at 240 Old Country Road in Mineola or at any New York State voter registration center. 

If residents are unable to vote in person, they may request an absentee ballot. Absentee ballots must be received by the county board at least 15 days prior to the election.

Nassau county residents can get more information on registering to vote on the county’s website.

Update: Port Washington North Trustee Andrea Scheff is running for her trustee again. A previous story identified the trustee as her late husband, Sherman Scheff, who had previously held office.
