Over 450 voters came out for the first contested Head of the Harbor election in over a decade, as Doug Dahlgard retained his seat on the village board and Daniel White knocked off incumbent Ted Naughton.
According to the village clerk's office, the vote tally from Tuesday's election was as follows:
- Dahlgard - 193
- White - 155
- Naughton - 116
The new village trustee is an attorney who also serves as a trustee for the Society for the Preservation of Long Island Antiquities and is a member of the Parish Council of the Church of Saint Elizabeth of Hungary.
He told Patch in an interview recently that he ran in part because of a recent 18 percent tax increase, and also to improve the village's highway and police departments.
