Peter Incledon Wins Eastchester Fire Commissioner Election Print

Dec. 11, 2013:  Peter Incledon of Bronxville won a decisive victory in the Eastchester Fire District Board of Commissioners election defeating incumbent Richard Steigelman.

For the third year in a row, Eastchester voters have elected to shift the complexion of the Eastchester Fire Board of Commissioners from familiar incumbents in favor of new members.

Incledon won a five-year seat on the board with a total townwide vote of 487. Steigelman received 282 votes.  In Bronxville, alone, Incledon received 282 votes.  Seteigelman's received 10.

The total of 769 votes cast was low, possibly due to the snowstorm that brought several inches of snow to the town. Last year the total townwide turnout was 1,174. The year before, it was 1,453.

This year's election for fire commissioner marks the last time it will be held on the second Tuesday of December. State legislation passed earlier this fall and signed by the governor has moved the voting date to the regular general election in November.
