Mayor William J. Vescio will be seeking re-election in March, he announced through the People's Caucus of Briarcliff Manor today.
According to a statement from Vescio, the economic climate played a role in his decision to commit to a potential two more years on the Board of Trustees.
"I felt it was time to step aside, however a significant number of residents and municipal leaders made the argument that during these difficult economic times, the Village needs to be even more diligent and I should continue in my service to the Village as its Mayor," he stated. "In the end, I agree that we as a Village need to be even more cautious and fiscally responsible during the next few years and therefore will be seeking re-election as Mayor."
At this time, no other candidates have asked to be considered for People's Caucus nomination in the position of mayor.
