Oyster Bay Supervisor John Venditto scored a convincing victory in Tuesday's election, leading the way for a Republican sweep of the town offices.

Venditto earned his ninth term as the town's top leader with 38,464 (Nearly 60 percent) of the votes over Democrat John E. Capobianco, who finished with 17,540 votes (27 percent).

The final returns indicate a complete GOP sweep of the town board and the town clerk position, as well.

Incumbent Republicans Chris J. Coschignano, Joseph Pinto and Michele Johnson were the top three vote-getters of six candidates. They outdistanced Democrats Kimberly Snow, Christopher Briggs and Sekhar Nelanuthala by almost 2-1 margins. All but one precinct had reported by 1 a.m. Wednesday.

It was a similar, lopsided victory for James Altadonna, Jr. The former Massapequa Park mayor and recently appointed town clerk defeated Mili Makhijani, 39,447- 22,521 (or by about 63 to 36 percent.)

The election results are unofficial.

This is a breaking story; Patch will have more Wednesday.
