Brookhaven Democrats pick their candidates
By Carl MacGowan
“Harrington said Brookhaven Democrats, who hold only one seat on the town’s seven-member town board, have been energized by Democrat Christine Pellegrino’s upset victory Tuesday in a special election to fill a vacant State Assembly seat on the Nassau-Suffolk border that had been held by Republican Joseph Saladino.
“I think people want a new direction across the country, from the top on down,” Harrington said. Pellegrino’s victory “is a remarkable result, and I think it’s something that can be replicated.”
