Incumbent Water Commission member Andrew Bader was easily re-elected Tuesday to another three-year term at the Plainview Water District.
Bader, currently serving as chairman of the board, defeated challenger Joseph Scarpa, a certified public accountant from Old Bethpage, by nearly a 2-1 margin.
Bader earned 397 votes; Scarpa received 217 votes.
"I'm very thankful for the faith the community has entrusted in me," Bader said Tuesday night. "I will try even harder in my second term to preserve and protect the quality of our water district."
Water commissioners oversee the operation of Plainview's Water District.
Bader has been on the board for the past three years and has been highly visible in the community. Bader has stressed the board's ongoing improvements to the water district.
Scarpa has advocated for water testing that goes beyond existing quality requirements.
