Patch Poll: Who Do You Want to Win Recount in 14th District?

The race was too close to call between Joseph Belesi and Eva Pearson Tuesday night.

Future control of the Nassau County Legislature has come down to a recount in the 14th district.

Incumbent Nassau County Legis. , R-Farmingdale, was just 51 votes over Democratic challenger for the 14th district seat after all votes were tallied early Wednesday morning. The 14th district covers parts of Seaford and North Wantagh.

Just before midnight, Belesi led Pearson 54 percent to 45 with 15 precincts counted. The margin steadily decreased and closed with Belesi at 50.21 percent and Pearson at 49.75 percent. All vote tallies are unofficial.

Belesi is a retired Nassau County Police Department supervisor who has represented the 14th Nassau County Legislative District since 2009. Pearson of Farmingdale is a newcomer and U.S. Air Force veteran.

Take the poll below to weigh-in on who you want as your representative in the legislature.

Anybody the NC Police Dept supports, I will not vote for. He is a retired police officer on a nice pension. Even he realizes that stuff has to stop. That is why Belosi should be supported.

I have no horse in this race. The one with the most votes, of course, will win. Those votes have already been cast, and now will apparently be re-counted. Let the chips fall....
