Copake Dems nominate many incumbents


COPAKE—Incumbent Democratic Town Board members Linda Gabaccia and Bob Sacks and incumbent Justice Brian Herman, also a Democrat, all won their party’s nomination for re-election in the November 3 election.
More than 100 Town Democrats met for their caucus June 20 at Town Hall.
In uncontested nominations, Democrats overwhelmingly backed Councilwoman Gabaccia and Councilman Sacks in their bids for re-election, each to a second four-year term on the Town Board.
In their acceptance speeches, the candidates both noted their accomplishments in the past four years on the Town Board and the need to continue to move the town forward, according to a press release from the town Democratic Club.
Also nominated without opposition was Town Justice Herman, who will run for a second four-year term on the bench.
In his acceptance speech, Judge Herman noted the many improvements made to the Town Court as a result of his efforts, all at no cost to Copake taxpayers.
In the only contest for a nomination, Loredana Delventhal of Copake Falls was the party’s choice for assessor. Also nominated for the post was David Gordineer, an Independence Party member, who was the Democratic nominee last November and was elected to fill a vacancy for a one-year assessor term.
The vote count in Ms. Delventhal’s favor was 79 to 13.
Ms. Delventhal is a certified paralegal, has her real estate sales license and intends to begin the assessor training course in October.
In her acceptance speech, she spoke of her great eagerness to give back to the community that has been so good to her. Ms. Delventhal is a new U.S. citizen, having immigrated from Romania, according to Copake Democratic Committee Chair Carol Sacks.
Copake Republicans will caucus Tuesday, June 30, 7 p.m. at Town Hall.
