— Ryan Wensley won the Republican primary Tuesday, beating a challenge from Walter Popailo to run for Chester Town Board on the GOP line.

According to the Orange County Board of Elections, Wensley won 63.75 percent of the vote, with 153 votes. Popailo won 85 votes, which represents 35.42 percent of the tally.

Wensley was appointed councilman to fill a vacancy. In November he will run to fill the two years remaining in the term. He was endorsed by the Chester Republican Committee and the Conservative and Independence Parties.

Popailo is the town's former parks director, dismissed in April by the town board.

In Goshen, incumbent George M. Lyons, with 264 votes (37.82 percent), and Richard D. Florio Jr., with 267 votes (38.25 percent), won their bid to run for two open seats in November as Republicans. Annmarie Rolo lost her bid with 162 votes (23.21 percent).
