LEWISBORO, N.Y. -- Incumbent Lewisboro Councilmen John Pappalardo and Dan Welsh have won their re-election bids, according to updated unofficial results from the Westchester County Board of Elections.

The updated results, which have all12 of the town's election districts reporting, show Pappalardo with 2,086 votes and Welsh with 1,460. Former Supervisor Charles Duffy, who is attempting a political comeback by running for a council seat, finished in third with 1,060.

Earlier unofficial results, which only included nine election districts, showed Pappalardo and Welsh with respective tallies of 1,615 and 1,254. Duffy previously had 782 votes.

Meanwhile, Highway Superintendent Peter Ripperger has won, according to the unofficial results, with 1,765 votes. His opponent (and predecessor) Stephen Hill, received 668. Previous results showed Ripperger with 1,380 votes and Hill with 478.

Supervisor Peter Parsons, who ran for re-election unopposed, has won another term. The updated unofficial results show the incumbent getting 2,050. The earlier results showed Parsons with 1,620 votes.

Town Clerk Janet Donohue, who is also running unopposed, has won another term; the updated unofficial results show that she got 2,267 votes. The previous figures showed Donohue with 1,746 votes.

Town Justice Susan Simon, who is running uncontested, has won re-election with 2,243 votes; previous results showed her with 1,746 votes.

Lewisboro's local Republican and Democratic committees opted to cross-endorse each of the local incumbents. Duffy, who did not like the agreement, successfully won the Republican ballot line after mounting a write-in primary challenge in September, thereby knocking off Welsh in the process.

The candidates each had additional minor-party lines. Welsh also ran on the Green and Working Families Party lines; Pappalardo ran on the Conservative and Reform Party lines; and Duffy ran on the Conservative and Independence Party lines. Parsons also ran on the Working Families Party line, while Donohue also ran on the Conservative and Reform Party lines.

Simon also ran on the Conservative Party line.

Ripperger was cross-endorsed by the Republicans and Democrats, and thus had both ballot lines. Hill, meanwhile, appeared on the Conservative Party line.
