The Town of Yorktown is holding a special election April 16 to fill the vacant town supervisor position left by the death of former supervisor Tom Diana….

The two candidates in the race for town supervisor are current acting supervisor Ed Lachterman, a Republican, and Yorktown small business owner and advocate Jann Mirchandani, a Democrat.

Lachterman was formerly deputy supervisor and was appointed to the role of acting supervisor by the Town Board following Diana’s death.

Mirchandani ran for town supervisor in last year’s election and lost to Diana. She is a board member of the Hudson Valley Gateway Chamber of Commerce, the Greater Hudson Valley Council Boy Scouts of America and the Hudson Valley Town Council.
