CLARKSTOWN, N.Y. -- Clarkstown Police Chief Michael Sullivan was fired by the Clarkstown Town Council at a meeting Tuesday night.

The board voted 3-2 to fire Sullivan, who was found guilty last month on 11 of 15 charges, including misconduct, insubordination, and incompetence. with a recommendation by hearing officer Robert Ponzini that he lose his job. Sullivan has been suspended since July 2016.

Sullivan is running for Town Supervisor on the Democratic ticket. Republicans, including  Supervisor George Hoehmann and Councilman Frank Borelli and John Noto, voted in favor while Democratic Councilmembers Daniel Caprara and Stephanie Hausner voted against his firing.

"The people of Clarkstown must have trust and confidence in those of us who serve them," Hoehmann said at Tuesday's meeting. "Chief Sullivan, you broke that trust with this board; you broke that trust with the men and women you commanded; and you broke that trust with the people of Clarkstown."

Sullivan said he plans to file a lawsuit to clear his name.
