Yonkers Democratic Committee YONKERS, NY — The Yonkers City Democratic Committee held its mini-convention at the Yonkers Riverfront Library this evening to nominates candidates among those contending for the office of Yonkers City Councilman to their respective districts. Chris Johnson, aide to New York State Senator Andrea Stewart-Cousins won among  seven contenders after three rounds of voting.   

Former Yonkers City Councilman Dennis Robertson, after a hiatus of 4 years out of office has returned with a first round win garnering 72 per cent of the vote supportive of his candidacy. Michael Sabatino earned 22 percent of the vote. With Mr Robertson endorsed by the Democrats, and Mr Sabatino having last week gained the endorsement of the Westchester County Independence Party, we may be assured these two gentlemen will contest to replace the outgoing Councilwoman Joan Gronowski. A Republican challenger was not named.

Katherine "Kat" Brezler, one-time candidate for the 5th Council District changed her focus by opting out of contention for City Councilwoman and instead shoe to throw her name for office of Mayor of Yonkers. She earned 0.68 percent of the vote. Even prior to last week's convention, rumors circulated that she might return her focus to challenge again for the 5th District. Were that the case, Ms Brezler did not announce her intention toward that end. The democrats have failed to endorse a candidate to challenge for respresenting the 5th District.

  1. The link you provide to Michael Sabatino is a Wikipedia article referring to another Michael Sabatino, not the candidate who is running for Yonkers City Council.
    Mr. Sabatino — the one running for Yonkers City Council and endorsed by the Independence Party for his district, is married to Robert Voorhies, and the couple has been together for nearly 1/3 of a century. He has worked in the field of medicine and biological technology, not as an actor, which is the Wikipedia page to which you link.

  2. If you think there is a “friends and family club” now, just wait until Nick Spano, um, excuse me, Mike Spano becomes Mayor, and the huge Spano clan is appointed to all the important positions in Yonkers. Add in their hanger-ons and they will have a total stranglehold on this city.
    I don’t care what political party you are in, for one family to have that much power is trouble.

  3. Who in their right mind could even consider Robertson? He gave up power and now wants to go back to the council in the hope that Martinelli wins and he can once again be Spencer’s puppet.
    Is this what the plan is Dennis? Sorry but Martinelli will not win. It looks like Spano vs Murtagh and so SpaNO wins. Now don’t get me wrong, I don’t like SpaNO for Mayor, but it will definitely not be Martinelli.
    The only ones winning in the Martinelli run are his handlers.

  4. Jay seems to be a worthy opponent. The “stacked Democrat vote” of district leaders will hopefully be overcome by the primary vote. Hack vs. substance. Thus in the general election Mike Sabatino and Jay Bryant will offer worthy credentials to replace our most dedicated Joan Gronowski.

  5. This is a guy with serious Wall Street finance experience, which Yonkers desperately needs. He is friends with Harry Wilson who should have been our State Comptroller instead of that troll DiNapoli.

  6. Jay Bryant wowed everyone at the convention on Friday. This is a guy with serious Wall Street finance experience, which Yonkers desperately needs. He is friends with Harry Wilson who should have been our State Comptroller instead of that troll DiNapoli.
    Dennis Robertson’s qualifications? A hack retred that cleans toilets at the casino.
    I think Jay Bryant is going to flush him down the toilet once and for all.
