Longtime Thomaston Mayor Robert Stern resigned on Monday, Sept. 8. Stern, who has led his village for 18 years, offered no official reason.
Stern, who is 89, had met with the Great Neck Record earlier this summer, sitting down for a lively discussion on current events in his village, The Thomaston board of trustees will meet on Oct. 20, for a regularly scheduled board meeting and will then appoint a mayor, presumably Deputy Mayor Steven Weinberg. In the interim, village sources tell the Great Neck Record that the deputy mayor immediately assumed the duties of mayor.
