Proud town officials took their official oaths of office at a swearing-in ceremony at Sunday afternoon. Supervisor Linda Puglisi was sworn into her 21st year in that position, a record for which she thanks her colleagues, family and community.
Puglisi along with board members Francis X. Farrell and Dr. Richard Becker and Town Justice Daniel McCarthy, were all re-elected to their positions on Nov. 8, 2011. Justice McCarthy ran against Frank Priolo and all other officials ran unopposed.
The Supervisor will serve her 11th two-year term, board members and Justice McCarthy will serve four-year terms.
The ceremony included musical performances by the Cortlandt Chamber Orchestra, the PAPA Interfaith choir, Hendrick Hudson High School students Claire Leyden, Tiffany Porras & Sunhwa Reiner, and Christopher McGinnis.
Each re-elected official made brief comments following their oaths. Read their comments in the captions of the photos above. County Legislator District 1 John Testa also congratulated the group on their re-elections and thanked them for their work in the Town of Cortlandt.
