YONKERS - Republican David Tubiolo won a special election Tuesday for the District 14 seat of longtime Westchester County Legislator Bernice Spreckman.

District 14 encompasses East Yonkers, Fleetwood and Mount Vernon West. Tubiolo won the district with 57 percent of the vote.

Tubiolo was challenged by Democratic and Working Families Party candidate Christine Peters, who cast her vote Tuesday morning at St. Ann's School on Brewster Avenue in Yonkers. With her daughter in tow, Peters said she was confident she convinced voters to make her the next legislator.

Tubiolo was accompanied by his family and County Executive Rob Astorino to the polls in Yonkers, where Tubiolo proudly cast a vote for himself. He said voters were heading to the polls because they want to see him carry on Spreckman's legacy on the county board.

As News 12 has previously reported, Spreckman, who's also a Republican, endorsed Tubiolo to replace her.
