NEW ROCHELLE, N.Y. – Despite an aggressive challenge from newcomer James O’Toole, Democratic Mayor Noam Bramson will remain in office for another term with the majority of Tuesday’s election results coming in.
With 75 percent of precincts reporting Bramson held a 64 percent majority over O’Toole, who earned less than 3,000 of nearly 10,000 votes early on. Bramson has been the mayor of New Rochelle since 2006.
This was the first mayoral run for O’Toole, who kicked off fundraising efforts in October at the bar he tends bar daily. Bramson was overwhelmingly re-elected in 2011 when he collected nearly 80 percent of the vote over his Republican opponent, leading the local GOP without a nomination this time around.
