Andre Rainey is the next Peekskill Mayor in a clean sweep for the Democrats.

Rainey, a Democrat, defeated two-term Republican incumbent Frank Catalina, 51 percent to 49 percent, 2,528 votes to 2,445 votes.

Vanessa Agudelo, Colin Smith, and Ramon Fenandez were elected to the Common Council with 2,715 votes, 2,655 votes and 1,987 votes, respectively.

Rainey, 33, will be the youngest mayor in Peekskill's history. Agudelo, 25 is the youngest council person to ever be elected to Peekskill City Hall.

“Peekskill decided tonight that they liked the success that the Democratic majority has been able to achieve, but wanted a more positive and unifying mayor,” said Rainey. “To those who voted for me and those who voted for the incumbent mayor, I will do everything I can every day to make you proud.

Robert Sullivan, Joe Torres and Luis Segarra, the Republican slate, were defeated in the Common Council race.
