NYACK, N.Y. -- Nyack's future development is a leading issue in the upcoming Democratic primary to fill two village trustee seats, according to lohud.com.
Don Hammond and Louise Parker, the incumbents, are running against Barbara Cohig and Donna Lightfoot Cooper, said the lohud.com report.
It will be advantageous to the winners on Tuesday, as voters typically lean Democratic, said lohud.com. The current board, and Mayor Jen Laird White are Democrats, according to lohud.com.
No Republicans were registered with Rockland County's Board of Elections, said the lohud.com report.
Cohig is a scenic artist, and Cooper works at the library, according to the lohud.com report.
Hammond is vying for a third term, while Parker will be seeking her eighth, lohud.com said.
The primary may be perceived as "a referendum of the actions the board has taken on development," a sticking point in Nyack, per candidates, the lohud.com report said.
Protests took place early in 2016 about an amendment to permit "taller and denser buildings" by the river, said lohud.com.
