Malvernites made their way to the Malverne Firehouse on Tuesday to cast their votes in this year’s village election. Voters elected the Independent Party’s slate of former Deputy Mayor Patricia Canzoneri-Fitzpatrick, who was the leading vote getter with 897 votes. Deputy Mayor Perry Cuocci was re-elected with 783 votes.
Lori Lang, who ran with the Hometown Pride Party, received 670 votes for trustee.
“I always think of it as a privilege to have people elect you and put their confidence in you,” Canzoneri-Fitzpatrick told the Herald. “I love my community, I love Malverne, and I’m just so honored that they chose me as their representative again.”
Cuocci, who was appointed to the village board in 2017, said he was humbled by his voters’ support. “This really speaks to the job that we’ve done as a village board,” Cuocci said. “Our bond rating is solid, our taxes are low, and I’m honored to serve the village again.”
“I’m ecstatic that the village residents supported what the current administration is doing,” said Malverne Mayor Keith Corbett, “and I look forward to working again with Patricia.”
