Cergol, Cook Re-Elected to Huntington Town Board

Incumbents Joan Cergol and Eugene Cook were re-elected to the Huntington Town Board Tuesday night.

The Democrat led all five candidates seeking election, coming in with 20,882 votes, followed by Cook, an independent, with 19,931, Republican Andre Sorrentino with 19,336, Democrat Kathleen Cleary with 18,777, libertarian Patrick Deegan with 938, and Eleanor D Putignano, who ran on the Green Party line, with 457.

Cook was re-elected to his third term  on the board.

Republicans gathered at the VFW Hall to await results, while Democrats headed to Honu restaurant downtown.
