Congratulations to the winners but let's now get down to business. Residents of White Plains PLEASE come to the meeting at RCC Thursday night and EDUCATE yourselves about the proposed FASNY project. LEARN why this would effect the whole city.

Does anybody know the final vote tallies? A short while ago westchestergov.com is still only reporting 90%, or 39 out of 43 districts of the White Plains vote. According to their figures that 90% appears to be 18,921 votes, in which case approximately 2102 votes have not been reported, at least not on that site. I heard some of county ballots were impounded because of a close county race, but why would they not disclose the final vote in the White Plains city races?

Same old - same old. With the low vote counts none of this is a mandate. Most of these candidates benefitted from the fact that most people DIDN'T vote. Not because of support for the status quo - but because of total apathy. BTW, to the commenter above, the only way FASNY will affect the whole city is if the city tries to buy it and then we all have to pay for the priviledged few golf course views.

Here Here. The voter apathy is obvious from this vote and the school budget/elections. I am sure there is more knowledge of NYC affairs than WP. As long as Democrats control the Admin and Council, and are directed by the Democratic Party aptly portrayed by Liz Shollenberger that only Democrats have good ideas, the city will continue to spiral down as taxes go up, young people move out, and seniors are forced to sell their homes because the cost to live in WP becomes too much.
