Challenger Declares ‘Super’ Victory


John Mangelli
John Mangelli, the Democratic challenger for Town of Oyster Bay Supervisor, declared victory over 18-year Republican incumbent John Venditto early this morning-but Venditto says the results are too close to call.

According to published reports, Mangelli currently holds a lead of less than 100 votes. If the results stand, Mangelli will be the only Democrat on the town board.

In another closely watched race, Acting District Attorney Madeline Singas defeated Republican challenger Kate Murray, 58 to 42 percent.
