MAMARONECK, N.Y. -- Mamaroneck's three newly-elected village trustees will talk about Tuesday's election and what's ahead on the November broadcast of "Local Live" produced by Larchmont-Mamaroneck Community Television (LMC-TV)
Democrats won all three seats up for election on Tuesday on the five-member Board of Trustees.
The live broadcast is on Optimum Channel 75 and Verizon Channel 36. You can also watch the trustees-elect on lmctv.org live stream by clicking here.
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 Democrats defeated Republicans Maria Micone DeRose, Joern Malte Stoeckhert and Dennis P. Cucinella
Trustees serve a two-year term and get paid $4,590 annually.

Expanded appointment powers of the newly-elected trustees, once they take office in January, also is a likely topic. On Tuesday, Mamaroneck voters approved two propositions that strip the village mayor of appointment powers, transferring them to a majority of votes by the village board -- which includes the mayor and deputy mayor.
Proposition No. 1 authoritizing 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 the new local laws in state Supreme Court last month.
