Jeanette Lenoir, WIBX

City of Rome, NY (WIBX) - The Mayor of Rome is conceding the election after a recount challenge was denied in State Supreme Court.James F. Brown asked for a recount of the mayoral race, after losing the election to Joseph R. Fusco Jr., by an 81 vote margin. In a released statement this morning, Brown thanked the community, his family and friends for their support, and vowed to continue to do the same for area residents and the incoming administration.

He said, “The people of this community have been supportive of me and I am grateful for the opportunity to have served them for the past eight years. When I first ran for office, I pledged to change the culture of city government, to be responsive first and foremost to the taxpayers of the City of Rome, and to run this operation like a successful business. I am proud that we have been successful in all three areas. It hasn’t been easy. We made many tough decisions, but at the end of the day, we’ve not just made it through some very difficult times but positioned ourselves well for the future.” Brown will end his 8 year tenure as Rome’s mayor in January when Fusco takes office.
