CLARKSTOWN - It was a race tainted with allegations of corruption, but in the end Clarkstown Supervisor Alex Gromack was defeated by George Hoehmann.

Hoehmann, a Republican and veteran of the Town Board, got 56 percent of the vote.
News 12 visited the Clarkstown supervisor-elect Wednesday, who was huddled with campaign staff in what the Republicans call their "war room," charting a transition plan.

In the last days of the campaign, Hoehmann faced questions about a campaign donation from an unknown donor through the Reform Party.

Gromack has also been under a cloud after he was linked to a federal investigation of payments he received from a bus company.

In conceding defeat, Gromack said, "It was a campaign that I think many people said should never have been to the level of some animosity, and I think everybody lost out a little bit on that."

As he takes over the role, Hoehmann says he will not be tied to his desk at Town Hall. He says he plans to take government out into the community.
