Mayor-Elect Warren Is Youngest Yet

first_imgJesse Warren’s smile was beaming ear to ear as friends, loved ones, and campaign members surrounded him after the Southampton Village election results were announced on Friday night, June 21. The 36-year-old beat out incumbent Michael Irving 450-405 to become the youngest mayor in village history.“We had every party, every group, every age group come out to vote,” said Warren, who’s owned Tenet on Main Street since 2010, and is a member of the village Planning Commission. “Even Southampton High School students came out to vote today. We reached out to every single person in the community, we canvased every single street, and we tried to connect with everyone. This campaign was about being open to everybody and representing everybody, and that’s exactly what I want to do.”There will also be a slew of fresh new faces on the village board. Seeking their first two-year trustee terms were Mark Parash, Andrew Pilaro, and Joseph McLoughlin, looking to fill the shoes of longtime board members Nancy McGann and Bill Hattrick who had opted not to run again. Parash, a lifelong resident and owner of Sip ’n’ Soda luncheonette, won over voters with 643 backers, while Pilaro, the president of CAP Properties Limited, a family-operated investment firm, edged out McLoughlin 443-433 for the second seat. McLoughlin, also a lifelong resident, and the youngest of the group to run, at 29 years old, is also a member of the Planning Commission.Irving, who had served as mayor the last two years, and was a trustee for over 10 years prior, said he can’t argue with what the people want.“In any election, it’s the people of the community that are speaking, and they feel he can do a better job,” the incumbent said. “It’s been a lot of work — a tremendous amount of work — but it’s been an absolute honor to serve the village.”He laughed when saying he’s looking forward to taking a break, adding the best part is he can now go to the grocery store without getting stopped in every aisle. Irving said he does not plan to seek office in the future. For Warren though, it’s right to work. “There’s a lot that needs to get done,” Warren said. “I feel extremely honored to be elected and honored to have the opportunity to serve every single resident and every single stakeholder and person in this village. I could not be happier. I’m looking forward to getting to work, working hard, and bringing forward some of the needed change to Southampton Village; working with everybody and being extremely inclusive to get that done.”desiree@indyeastend.com Jesse Warren is congratulated by family, friends, and campaign members following the announcement of his 450-405 win over incumbent Michael Irving for Southampton Village mayor.

Mourinho angry as FA Cup tie against Chelsea is announced before Europa League draws

first_imgManchester United manager, Jose Mourinho, has blasted the organizers of the FA Cup, for announcing the date of their quarter-final clash at Chelsea before Europa league draws.United sealed their passage into the last 16 of the Europa League with a 1-0 win over St Etienne on Wednesday.They face a hectic fixture list over the next few weeks and their game at Stamford Bridge will be played on March 13, sandwiched between their Europa League last-16 first and second legs.Mourinho is angry that the date was announced before the Europa League draws are conducted this Friday.“Of course and I feel really surprised that the decision is made before our draw in Europe,” he said.“Because in this moment nobody knows where we play, nobody knows where the first and second matches are. Imagine we play Chelsea on Monday and then we have to go to the second match in Europe in Russia, Turkey or Greece.“I think once more the interests, they go in front of the clubs and English football’s interests, and nobody cares about it. But this is what I have.“I cannot play against Chelsea with the second team. I cannot play against Chelsea with the U21s like Manchester City did last year. I cannot do that – we are Manchester United.“I don’t do that as Manchester United manager. I don’t do that to the FA Cup because the FA Cup is not guilty of these decisions. The FA Cup is beautiful, the competition is historical. I have to treat Manchester United supporters and the FA Cup in the right way.“I cannot go there with U21s. Probably they would deserve it, but I don’t do that, so what is going to happen is an accumulation of matches.“People playing a lot of matches, I have to make some rotation but some of the boys will have to play in all these consecutive matches”, he said.last_img read more
