WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. -- White Plains voters re-elected three incumbent Democrats to the city's Common Council on Tuesday, according to unofficial results from the Westchester County Board of Elections.

Four people ran for three seats.

Republican AnneMarie Encarnacao, a lifelong resident of White Plains, lost her second try at landing a seat on the all-Democratic city council, securing about 13 percent of the unofficial vote totals.

Incumbent Democrat Nadine Hunt-Robinson completed the unexpired term of Ben Boykin, who left to became a Westchester County legislator in 2014. This was her first election for a full two-year term. An attorney, Hunt-Robinson is chair of the mayor's Youth Board.

Hunt-Robinson was leading the field of four candidates with 3,662 votes or about 30 percent of unofficial votes counted on Tuesday.

Democrat Dennis Krolian has been a member of the White Plains Council since 2012. The 32-year city resident is a practicing trial attorney. Krolian also received about 30 percent of Tuesday's vote total, according to unofficial returns.

Democrat Milagros Lecuona has been a member of the White Plains Common Council since 2008. Lecuona had about 27 percent of Tuesday's voter support, according to unofficial returns. She is chair of Sustainable White Plains, a board member of the White Plains Historical Society and a volunteer firefighter with Hope Engine Company. She has degrees and experience in urban planning and architecture.

Encarnacao, a real estate broker with two children, said during several voter forums that city government had put the special interests of corporations developing downtown ahead of residents. She also ran for Common Council in 2013. She expressed concerns about empty storefronts, the lack of parking for residents and high rents charged by landlords.
