LEWISBORO, N.Y. -- Incumbent Lewisboro Councilmen John Pappalardo and Dan Welsh are each seeking re-election, while former Supervisor Charles Duffy seeks a return to the Town Board as a challenger.

Initially, the council elections were slated to be uncontested; both the local Democratic and Republican committees cross-endorsed each other's candidates. Pappalardo had previously run with the Republicans, while Welsh had run on the Democratic slate.

Welsh lost the Republican ballot line when Duffy defeated him in a September write-in primary. As a result, the two share running mates on each major party's slates.

The shared running mates - Supervisor Peter Parsons, Town Clerk Janet Donohue and Town Justice Susan Simon - are each running unopposed for their re-election bids.

Highway Superintendent Peter Ripperger, who was also cross-endorsed by both major parties , is facing Steve Hill, a former superintendent who is running on the Conservative Party ballot line.

A campaign website for the cross-endorsed candidates, which is called Lewisboro 2015, is available here . Duffy's campaign Facebook page is available here , while Hill's can be read here .

Candidates will also appear on several minor-party ballot lines. Duffy will also be listed on the Conservative and Independence Party lines; Pappalardo will appear on the Conservative and Reform Party lines; and Welsh will be listed on the Green and Working Families Party lines.

Uncontested candidates with minor-party lines include Parsons, who will also have the Working Families Party line; Donohue, who will appear under the Conservative and Reform Party lines; and Simon, who has the Conservative Party line.
