Jun 23, 2010 12:12 PM

There were no upsets in Quogue Village’s uncontested election last Friday.

Mayor Peter Sartorius received 79 votes to win his first two-year term to the village’s top post. After previously serving as a trustee, Mr. Sartorius was appointed to the mayoral position in November 2009, after then-mayor George Motz resigned.

Trustee Jeanette Obser, who served on the board since 2002, won reelection with 66 votes. Trustee Kimberley Payne, who has served since 2006, garnered 81 votes. They will each serve two-year terms.

The newest trustee, Ted Necarsulmer, received 78 votes to win his first term. Mr. Necarsulmer was appointed in December to fill the trustee seat vacated by Mr. Sartorius. He will face reelection again in one year, after completing the remainder of Mr. Sartorius’s term.

Mr. Payne received one write-in vote for mayor. Three other individuals—Erica Mahl, Richard Schermeyer and Jay Nuland—received one write-in vote each for trustee positions, according to Village Clerk Marcia Rose Koziarz.
