RYE, N.Y. -- Republican Joe Sack led opponents Peter Jovanovich and Nancy Silberkleit Tuesday night, with five out of 14 districts reporting.

With 35 percent of districts reporting, Sack had 70 percent of the vote, Jovanovich has 28 percent and Silberkleit has 2 percent, according to the Board of Elections.

Sack is a Republican and Jovanovich and Silberkleit are Independents.

Sack is an attorney who has served on the Rye City Council since 2008. Jovanovich has worked in publishing and served on the City Council since 2009. Silberkleit is the co-chief executive officer of Archie Comics and was seeking her first elected position. Incumbent Mayor Doug French decided earlier this year not to seek re-election.

Major issues that came up during the campaign included the city's spending, the negotiations with the police and firefighter unions, and the role of the city manager.
