MAMARONECK, N.Y. -- Democrats swept to victory in the Village of Mamaroneck on Tuesday, winning all three seats on the five-member Board of Trustees.

According to unofficial returns from the Westchester County Board of Elections, the winners were Victor M. Tafur, an environmental lawyer and professor; Keith W. Waitt, a former chairman of the village budget committee; and incumbent trustee Leon A. Potok, a retired financial adviser.

The Democratic trio defeated Republicans Maria Micone DeRose, Joern Malte Stoeckhert and Dennis P. Cucinella

Trustees serve a two-year term and get paid $4,590 annually.

Mamaroneck voters approved two propositions that strip the village mayor of appointment powers.

Proposition No. 1 favoring the appointment of a village attorney by the village trustees passed by 3,428 votes to 2,306 votes, according to unofficial returns from the county Board of Elections.

Proposition 2, which gives the village trustees the power to appoint planning and zoning board members, also passed by 3,374 votes to 2,298 votes.

Mamaroneck Mayor Norman Rosenblum, a Republican, opposed both propositions. Rosenblum unsuccessfully tried to challenge them in state Supreme Court last month.
