Local Elections Decided With Low Voter Turnout
Election Day has come and gone, with most races uncontested.
In Whitesboro, Mayor Raymond Daviau was elected to a one year term, receiving 131 votes. Former mayor, Brenda Gilberti also received two write-in votes.
The trustee position was awarded to Robert Friedlander with 119 votes, but 39 also went to Donald Mullen.
In New York Mills, Justice Robert Glenn received 69 votes and will hold the bench for four more years.
The mayoral race in Sylvan Beach also come to an end, with Gregory Horan defeating former Assemblyman Dave Townsend, 242 to 114.
Oneida County Republican Commissioner, Rose Grimaldi, says the low turnout was probably caused by the intermittent snow that fell throughout the day.
