It's nice to see some new faces running for office. How about Gene Ceccarelli. Gene is running on his own ticket for Trustee and I hope everyone gets a chance to meet Gene and see that he wants what is best for Port Chester and its Taxpayers. Please consider Gene for a few of your six trustee votes.I know I will. Thanks
