PLEASANTVILLE -

A Pleasantville woman is looking to become the first Democrat in 30 years to serve on the Mount Pleasant Town Board.

Francesca Hagadus-McHale is running for the first time against Anthony Amiano.

Amiano, 24, was appointed to the position in May to fill a seat vacated by then-councilman Mark Rubeo.

Amiano says if elected, he'll continue to build upon the town's redevelopment plans.

Hagadus-McHale says she wants a chance to offer change in the traditionally Republican-held council.

The candidate who wins the election will have to run again next year for a four-year term. This is the only race this year in the town of Mount Pleasant.
