Results are in from special district elections which took place in a cold and snowy Port Washington on Tuesday.

Despite the inclement weather, voters made their way to the Polish American Cultural Association to cast votes in uncontested races for police, garbage and water district commissioners.

Police District

With 134 votes, incumbent Dave Franklin won reelection to a second, three-year term as commissioner of the Port Washington Police District.

"I live Port Washington and I serve at the pleasure of the citizens," said Franklin on Wednesday. "It is an honor to be re-elected, and I appreciate the support, confidence and trust of the community. I will work hard to earn that trust."

In his first term, Franklin helped to successfully negotiate two PBA contracts without arbitration, including plans for an early retirement program for existing officers.

Franklin has served since 2011.

Water District

Port Washington Water District Commissioner Mindy Germain received 154 votes to win reelection.

It was Germain's first time being elected to a full, three-year term of office.

In June of 2012, Germaine replaced longtime water district Commissioner Thomas J. Murray who vacated his seat before his term was complete.

Garbage District

Receiving 109 votes, incumbent Bill Scaglione won reelection to a three-year term as commissioner of the Port Washington Garbage District.

Scaglione, a local business owner for nearly 30 years, has a background in engineering.
