New Harrison Mayor Takes Over Jan. 1

HARRISON, N.Y. - Mayor/Supervisor-elect Ron Belmont and his GOP colleagues will be sworn into office in a ceremony on New Year's Day, putting Harrison under the jurisdiction of a completely Republican board.

"I look forward to putting things in the right direction now," Belmont said following his election. "We'll have to work together as a board. There are no more sides or difference."

Belmont and his fellow GOP candidates ousted Harrison Democrats Councilman Pat Vetere and Mayor/Supervisor Joan Walsh in November's election.

"Harrison residents have chosen a new mayor and returned a big spender as councilman," Walsh said in a statement referring to Steve Malfitano. "I wish Ron Belmont the best of times, that he gets the best advice, and makes the best decisions."

Also being sworn in Jan. 1 will be council member-elect Malfitano and reelected council member Fred Sciliano. Town Clerk-elect Jackie Greer, Town Judge Marc Lust and Judge-elect Nelson Canter will also be inaugurated in the ceremony.

"I'm looking forward to serving with a five-to-none Republican board," Malfitano said of the results of last November's election.

The ceremony is scheduled for Jan. 1 at 1:30 p.m. inside the Town Hall building at 1 Heineman Place.
