STONY POINT – Republican Town Councilman Jim Monaghan beat Democratic challenger Luanne Konopko, for Town Supervisor on Tuesday.

The vote for the two-year term was 2,161 to 1,297. Stony Point Supervisor Geoffrey Finn did not seek a third term.

Council members Karl Javenes (R) and Jim White (R) took the two seats with 2,076 and 1,880 repsectively. Democrats Dominick A. Posillipo had 1,272, and Mike Ehlers had 1,343.

Republican William F. Franks, the incumbent town justice, won by a landslide with 2,417 to Democrat K. Jody Cucolo's 953 votes.

Town Clerk Joan Skinner (D) will serve another four-year term. Superintendent of Highways Larry R. Brissing (R) will serve another four-year term.

Monaghan has vowed to bring in more ratables to combat rising property taxes. In recent years, Stony Point has lost its largest taxpayers – Gibson, Tilcon, the Lovett plant and more.

“As a longtime homeowner, I know what it is like to have to struggle to pay the ever-rising property taxes,” said Monaghan, a retired lieutenant commanding officer in the New York Police Department. “I want my children to be able to reside here and raise their families in the town that I care so much for. That is why I am running for supervisor.”
