    GREENWOOD LAKE-Three-term mayor William Morris got a run for his money Tuesday night, but voters in Greenwood Lake gave him the nod over challenger Frank Conti by just 24 votes out of 810 cast. Barbara Moore regained her seat on the Village of Greenwood Lake Board of Trustees as she came out on top of five candidates who were vying for two seats. Among them was Ann Marie Savarese, the one-term trustee who defeated Moore just two years ago. William Sahler was reelected, defeating Savarese, Brian Fisher, and Adam Filipowski. That's where the excitement ended on Election Day locally. In the Village of Florida, Frank Jarocki and Frank Pierce ran unopposed in their bids for reelection. Each received 44 votes. Jarocki has tenure on the board, serving 22 years, since April 1983. Pierce took office in August 1989. It was even quieter in the Village of Warwick where Justice Richard Farina ran unopposed for the village justice position, one he has held for eight years. Farina received 36 votes but it wasn't even that exciting. Fourteen of those votes were absentees, according to Village Clerk Jacque Mongelli. The seven inspectors voted - they were already there. That left just 16 people who actually walked into the polls on Tuesday to vast their vote. "It was extremely quiet all day," Mongelli commented.
