Jeanne Kane and Ed Haye, running as a slate to retain their seats on the Sag Harbor Village Board, were victorious Tuesday night over their challengers, Mary Ann Eddy and Ronald Reed.

Polls closed at 9 p.m., and after nearly two hours of vote-counting in the Sag Harbor Fire Department headquarters on Brick Kiln Road, Ms. Kane emerged as the top vote-getter with 239, followed by Mr. Haye with 237, Ms. Eddy with 204, and Mr. Reed with 108.

"I'm thrilled to know the village supports the existing team so that we can continue with the agenda we hope to fulfill," Ms. Kane said moments after sending a text to her running mate with the results. "It just shows how every vote counts."

Ms. Eddy and Mr. Reed both shook Ms. Kane's hand quickly before leaving.

"We will all continue to work together from the places we touch," said Ms. Kane, referring to Mr. Reed's role on the village planning board and school board and Ms. Eddy's on the village's harbor committee.

And the congratulations rolled in. "Onward and upward," said Mayor Tom Gardella. "A stunning victory," commented Ed Deyermond, who with his wife, Bethany, was one of about seven curious poll-watchers who stuck it out for almost the whole two hours.
