Sutz and Palermo will vie in Dem primary for Woodbury supervisor

Woodbury Supervisor David Sutz and town Councilman Frank Palermo will square off in a Democratic primary for a two-year supervisor term on Sept. 12, a contest that probably will decide the race since no Republican candidate is running.

Sutz, a former Woodbury village trustee, was elected supervisor in 2015, ousting Republican Ralph Caruso after his one year in office. Palermo had served as acting supervisor for several months in 2014 after John Burke, the Democrat who had long held that office, died unexpectedly.

The town Democratic Committee announced this week it had endorsed Palermo and two Town Board running mates, Amidee Haviland lll and Jacqueline Hernandez. Haviland, a former councilman, and Hernandez are competing with Councilman Robert Hunter and village Planning Board member Sandra Capriglione for two, four-year councilman seats on the Town Board.

Palermo and Hernandez also are running for office on the Independence Party line, so both will be on the Nov. 7 general election ballot regardless of the Democratic primary outcome. None of the other Town Board contenders have third-party lines as a fallback, although candidates have until Aug. 22 to submit independent petitions for the general election.
