Catherine Parker wrapped up her victory in District 7 of the Westchester Board of Legislators Tuesday, two weeks after election day, after the count of paper ballots increased her lead over John Verni.
The still-unofficial count, including machine votes, absentee and affidavit ballots, gave Parker a 403-vote lead. Parker got 6,710 votes to Verni’s 6,307.
Parker, a member of the Rye City Council, will take the seat being vacated by Judy Myers. District 7 includes Mamaroneck, Rye, Larchmont and parts of Harrison and New Rochelle.
Reached shortly after the count wrapped up, Verni said he would be calling Parker to wish her well.
“It was a good race,” he said. “I think it was one of the more cordial races in Westchester.”
