On each of these races, the Democratic candidates won handily.  It is natural that for federal and state races, where there are established party positions, that electors vote for the same party candidates.  On a local level, where the same issues do not apply, voters should be more discerning.

The chart below compares this election with the last contested election in Mount Kisco in 2006, another mid-term election:

 

2006

 

2010

Democrat

DiChiara

1,826

 

 Farber

1,472

 

Grunthal

1,732

 

 Morreale

1,460

           

Republican

Flynn

   825

 

 Strauss

855

       

 Giner

844

           

Independent

     

 DiChiara

359

Looking at the results above, it would appear that Pete DiChiara committed a heinous crime or immoral act.  No, he just did not run on the Democratic line, which appears to be worth over 1,000 votes, no matter the candidate.  No one has lost on the Democratic line since Michael Cindrich lost to Patricia Reilly in 2001. 

Mount Kisco is a Democratic village and its village officials will be the officials appointed by the Democratic Committee unless there is a change in the system.
