GOP search for opponent to Suffolk Legis. Sarah Anker

After spending months trying to woo Conservative Brookhaven Town Board member Jane Bonner to run for the Suffolk County Legislature, town Republicans are looking elsewhere for a candidate to take on Democratic Legis. Sarah Anker in the 6th Legislative District.

The three-term lawmaker from Mount Sinai, who won her last election by only 19 votes in a recount, is a perennial GOP target in a heavily Republican district.

One contender is Gary Pollakusky, 41, of Rocky Point, who was campaign manager two years ago for Steven Tricarico, deputy highway superintendent. Another contender is Frank Vetro, an internet radio host and real estate agent.
