There are two candidates seeking the seat of retiring District 6, County Legislator Martin Rogowsky. Rogowsky served a total of 13 years on the County Board of Legislators, one term starting in 1990 and returned in 2002.
Candidate Daniel Brakewood is currently a Trustee and Police Commissioner in the Village of Port Chester. His platform includes increasing efficiency in county government and reducing noise at the county airport. Brakewood has also suggested the office of County Executive should be a professional, rather than elected position. He holds a doctorate in sociology and is Global Director of Market and Customer Insights at Pitney Bowes.
David Gelfarb is currently serving on the Rye Town Council. His platform includes "bringing fiscal sanity to County government" by reducing the tax burden and also advocates limiting expansion of the airport. Gelfarb says he will work with County Executive Astorino to "minimize partisan rancor." He is an attorney at Moss & Kalish in New York City.
