Long time Sag Harbor resident Kathleen Mulcahy, a former marketing executive and current real estate agent, was elected Mayor of Sag Harbor Village Tuesday, besting two-term incumbent Sandra Schroeder in a decisive 489 to 197 victory.

Incumbent trustee Aidan Corish, seeking his second elected term on the village board, was easily re-elected with 481 votes. Robert Plumb, a current member of the village’s zoning board of appeals, was also elected to the village board of trustees with 447 votes. While the three candidates ran their campaigns under separate party banners, leading up to Tuesday’s election, they were aligned, hosting a meet-and-greet event together and promoting each other on social media.

Jennifer Ponzini, a former member of the ZBA, attorney and real estate agent, received 247 in her bid for one of the seats on the village board with Silas Marder, a landscape and furniture designer, taking 78 votes.

Sag Harbor Village Justice Lisa Rana, running unopposed, was reelected with 471 votes and a proposition to increase the Length of Service Award Program benefits for the Sag Harbor Volunteer Ambulance Corps received overwhelming community support, passing 597-54.

A full story on the election will appear Wednesday online at sagharborexpress.com and in the print edition on Thursday, June 20.
