From the Daily News:
The board’s 10 commissioners voted as Kappstatter reported, with Republican J.C. Polanco of the Bronx defecting from the GOP ranks and voting with the five Democratic commissioners to promote George Gonzalez of the Bronx to executive director and to name Dawn Sandow to assume Gonzalez's deputy executive director’s post. Sandow, a Bronx Republican, had been the deputy chief clerk of the Bronx Board of Elections office.
Polanco had initially led the unsuccessful effort to block Gonzalez from getting the top executive job on the board -- even offering himself as a candidate. But after months of deadlock, Polanco saw the wisdom of cutting a deal of his own and jumping ship to the Democrats’ side.
Several Republicans also nominated former Republican State Sen. Serphin Maltese of Queens for the executive director’s job, but that motion was defeated by a split vote, with four Republicans (other than Polanco) voting yes, two Democrats voting no and four commissioners (three Democrats plus Polanco) abstaining.
