Former Riverhead supervisor seeks old job

RIVERHEAD - As voters prepare to go to the polls tomorrow, one of the higher-profile primary races is in Riverhead, where a former town supervisor is hoping to get his old job back.

Phil Cardinale, who lost the job two years ago, has been accused by his opponent in the Democratic primary, business consultant Greg Fischer, of obstructing a police investigation several years ago when he was town supervisor.

Cardinale denies any wrongdoing and points out that Fischer has several criminal charges pending against him - and that he's also been accused of forging the signatures of a prominent Riverhead couple on his petitions.

The current town supervisor, Sean Walter, will be running for re-election on the Republican line.
