Election Day Brings Close Results to Farmingdale

Official results not finished

In a year when the entire borough council resigned with the exception of Mayor Jay Morgan, the residents of Farmingdale will have to wait a little while longer to see who will sit at the dais in January with some of the slots separated by only a few votes. 

With the unofficial results posted by the county Republican James A. Daly won the full term on the council with 420 votes to the 387 for fellow Republican Patricia A. Linszky.

Running for the two year unexpired term Republican Michael Burke received 350 votes which put him ahead of Democrat Richard Geffken's 312, Republican Joseph Hultmark's 293 votes and Democrat Lorelei Rouvrais' 263 votes. 

In a four person race for a one year unexpired term the four candidates are all separated by just a handful of votes. The unofficial results have Republican Michael Romano and Democrat Carly Immen with 307. That puts them just five votes ahead of Republican George Dyevoich Jr. and Democrat Jan Zientek who each received 302 votes. 

As it stands now the council consists of Mayor Morgan, Dyvoich, Geffken, Romano, Burke and Linszky.

The Farmingdale Board of Education race is also close according to the unofficial results. William 'Beau' Byrtus received 359 votes to William L. Shaffer's 348 votes. 

Farmingdale residents also approved a question on the ballot to raise $60 thousand to be used for "new computers and technology equipment." The question was approved 278-193.
