Three candidates race for mayor in Freeport village election


Freeport Mayor Robert Kennedy is running to retain the job against his predecessor and a former village justice in an election that will determine the village’s next four years of fiscal stability.

Kennedy, former Mayor Andrew Hardwick and attorney Stephen Drummond, all Democrats, are each leading their own slates of candidates for the two open trustee spots also to be filled in Tuesday’s election.

Kennedy is running on the Unity Home Rule Party ticket with incumbent trustees Carmen Pineyro and Ronald Ellerbe.
