That collective groan you might have heard from Westchester Democratic leaders tonight likely had something to do with the failure of Greenburgh Democratic Chairwoman Suzanne Berger’s bid to oust town Supervisor Paul Feiner.
Though she was taking on an incumbent and a fellow Democrat, Berger was backed by not only her own town party, but most of the top Democrats in Westchester Ã¢â‚¬â€ many of whom had grown tired of Feiner.
Among those backing Berger were County Executive Andrew Spano, County Clerk Tim Idoni, Assemblyman Richard Brodsky and Assemblywoman Amy Paulin.
These endorsements, however, didn’t seem to sway Greenburgh voters. With 91 percent of the vote tallied, Feiner had a huge lead over Berger – 67 percent to 33 percent.
So much for the power of endorsements.
