Multiple sources tell The Peekskill Post that Councilman Andre Rainey, a Democrat, is his party’s choice for mayor. The sources, which consist of two Democrats and one Republican, also said the Peekskill City Democratic Committee’s candidates for Common Council will be Colin Smith, Ramon Fernandez and Vanessa Agudelo.
With that slate, Deputy Mayor Drew Claxton will leave the Common Council in January after 16 years. She has been battling cancer.
The Democrats had their nominating meeting tonight, as did the Peekskill Republicans. When we get word of the Republican slate we will bring it to you.
