POUND RIDGE, N.Y. – More than 70 voters turned out to meet the candidates at the Pound Ridge Women's Republican wine and cheese gathering.
Supervisor Gary Warshauer, who is retiring from the post after many years, said it had been an honor and a privilege to serve Pound Ridge and added he has full faith in the party’s new candidate, Dick Lyman.
Lyman, who grew up in Pound Ridge, has served on many town boards over the years and has been a member of the Town Council for the last nine. He has volunteered to serve on the Zoning Board, the Fire Department, the Pound Ridge Elementary School PTA, the Little League, the Boy Scouts and Neighbor to Neighbor.
Also on hand for the evening was H.P. Sean Dweck, a 10-year resident running for town justice, and Peter Avellino and Bonnie Schwartz, each a resident for more than 20 years and both running for Town Council. Debbie Damascus, receiver of taxes since 2007, is running for re-election.
“We have an impressive lineup of candidates,” said Republican committee Chairman Joe Zaino. ”They bring a wealth of knowledge and experience and understand what makes Pound Ridge unique as well as a great place to live.”
George Oros, chief of staff for County Executive Rob Astorino, also dropped in to offer a few words of support. Republican Astorino is running for re-election this year, challenged by Democrat Noam Bramson, current mtayor of New Rochelle.
