White Plains, NY — Acid-tongued bloggers have advised that Westchester County Republican Committee Chairman Doug Colety has just been named the Republican Commissioner of the Westchester County Board of Elections. Mr Colety replaces former Republican Commissioner Steve Levy. Mr Colety was prodded to remove Mr Levy at the urging of Westchester County Independence Party Chair Dr Giulio Cavallo. Mr Levy was the former Chief of Staff to former NYS Senator Nick Spano. Dr Cavallo was also instrumental in cajoling Mr Colety to fire Rosemary Gannon, Nick Spano's sister-in-law.
Speculation as to who would succeed Mr Levy ran the gamut from Republican stragegist Phil Gilles, to Westchester County Republican Committee Second Vice Chair Christine Sculti, among others.
