The Mount Kisco Republican and Democratic committees have nominated four individuals to run for Trustee of the Village of Mount Kisco.
The Republicans nominated Theodore Strauss and Peter Giner. Theodore Strauss, 78, lives on Moore Avenue and is an architect for Theodore Laurence Strauss Architechts. Peter Giner, also 78, lives in Diplomat Towers and is a retired businessman who worked at Tano, a store formerly located in the village.
The Democrats nominated Joseph Morreale and Jean Farber. Joseph Morreale, 65, lives on Rolling Ridge Court and is a member of the Planning Board in Mount Kisco. Jean Farber, 61, lives on Glassbury Court and has been a resident of Mount Kisco for only four years. She is not a member of any of the Village of Mount Kisco’s volunteer committees but neither Farber, Strauss or Giner volunteer for any of the village’s committees.
There are two open seats on the Village Board. Current Trustee Peter Grunthal is retiring to pursue other opportunities. Deputy Mayor Pete DiChiara did not seek and, as a result, did not receive a nomination from the Mount Kisco Democratic committee.
Pete DiChiara may run as an independent candidate. In Mount Kisco, however, it is difficult for anyone not nominated by the Democratic committee to win an election as over 40 percent of the registered voters are registered as Democrats.
