159 votes were cast in the Sanitary District No.1 election on July 9, and unopposed incumbent, Harry Beltrani, made a clean sweep, receiving all 159 of them in his bid for re-election. Beltrani said, “We’ve been doing a good job, and I’m looking to keep that up.”
This is Beltrani’s fourth term as commissioner and each term is five years. The district’s Board of Commissioners also includes Irving Kaminetsky, James Vilardi, Frank Argento and Lino Viola. George Pappas is the district superintendent.
