Nassau County Executive Laura Curran has fallen short 2,150 votes in her bid for re-election to Republican Bruce Blakeman, a Hempstead Town Councilman.
Two weeks after residents cast their ballots, the county Board of Elections’ Democratic Commissioner James P. Scheuerman announced that all votes had been counted and the final tally was Curran with 140,476 votes and Blakeman with 146,626.
“It’s official! We won thanks to YOUR support,” Blakeman posted to social media shortly after the announcement. “On January 1st, we’ll move Nassau forward with plans that protect your wallet, increase public safety and protect parent rights.”
