Former Yorktown Supervisor Susan Siegel, who served one term as supervisor when she was elected in 2009, will seek the Democratic Town Committee's nomination for town supervisor for this year's election.
"I'm seeking the nomination because I believe that Yorktown voters should have a choice in November," she said in a statement. "Our community is better served when voters are given the opportunity to compare and contrast competing candidates."
Siegel, who continued to follow local politics and issues when she lost the 2011 election, said she will discuss her concerns about the town and future plans during her interview with the Democratic Town Committee members.
She said she hopes the nominating committee would see she is a "strong, vital" candidate who would be "good for the community."
Siegel ran as a Republican in 2009 and defeated former Supervisor Don Peters. While running for re-election in 2011, she lost the primary election and the Republican Party line to current Supervisor Michael Grace. She unsuccessfully run on the Conservative Party line and as a third party candidate for the Better Government Party line during the three-way race between her, Grace and Peters.
"It's one thing to have lofty visions. We all do. What’s more important, though, is that voters be given the opportunity to determine which candidate is more likely to be successful in realizing those visions," Siegel said.
