The Democrats have been able to maintain their majority on the Huntington Town Board. Susan Berland (D, WF, I) came in second after Gene Cook (R, C, I). Glenda Jackson (D, WF) finished fourth. Herb Morrow (R, C) finished third. The candidates with the top two number of votes win a seat on the board. Members of the Town Board serve for four years. Gene Cook will join Mark Mayoka (R, C), as the second republican on the Town Board in January 2012. Susan Berland will rejoin Frank Petrone (D, WF) and Mark Cuthbertson (D, WF) and the democrats will have a 3-2 majority.

Councilwoman Glenda A. Jackson was appointed to the Huntington Town Board in February of 2006 to fill the vacant seat of Marlene Budd.  She was then elected in November of that year to serve out the balance of the term. She was then reelected in 2007 to serve a full four year term.
