Tags: , , ,

Democratic nominee and Sag Harbor resident Andrea Schiavoni, who is up against Republican incumbent Tom DeMayo for the Southampton Town justice position, lost one of her original endorsers as a result of primaries held Tuesday night.

DeMayo won the Conservative vote 85 to 66 while Schiavoni took Working Families 23 to 10 and the Independence Party 94 to 69.

Schiavoni, hit a trifecta at first, winning all three parties’ endorsements.

“It truly was humbling to have received all three,” she said. “It was an unprecedented honor and has never happened to a Democratic candidate.”

DeMayo had been expecting the Conservative Party’s endorsement and said he had always considered himself a Conservative Republican.

“I’m very happy,” he said. “It’s very satisfying that the conservative voters came out and recognized the true conservative candidate.”
