2012 voting results

Posted by MJ

In the mayor race Tucker is ahead by 200 votes at the close of polls. About 275 absentee ballots still need to be counted but the lead should hold.

Even though Pillot did not have much of a platform, the assessments (not controlled by the city), privatization of garbage (change is scary?) and the Hoffman job removal mess had me figuring it would be close.

If nothing else, the close primaries and actual election votes hits home the importance of voting.

In alderman news from the LUSJ:

City voters returned incumbents to the Common Council by sizable margins Tuesday. First Ward Alderman Richelle J. Pasceri, 5th Ward Alderman Kenneth M. Genewick and 4th Ward alderman- elect Patrick  Schrader, who served in the seat for 10 years, are returning to the Council table on Jan. 1. They’ll be joined by  veteran Alderman at Large Joe Kibler, newly elected 2nd Ward Alderman Anne McCaffrey and newly elected 3rd Ward Alderman Kathryn “Kitty” Fogle, who had no opposition to fill seats in the 2012-13 Council.
Entire Niagara County race results are at the County Board of Elections website.

Strange to see people return incumbents (who are claimed to vote lock-step with Tucker) yet vote so close in the Tucker race itself.

In my opinion, if you don't vote you lose your right to complain about the election results. Doesn't mean you all of a suddn have to like the guy elected/re-elected - but you should show some respect to both winners and those who bothered to put their name on a ballot.

I love how people talk about how you should show some respect to elected officials but when the TV camera is rolling all they do is bash the mayor and the council!! This is the same person you basically ran a certain persons campaign for alderwomen and bashed her opponent with nothing but lies and told her candidiate everything to say and write!!!

The last post doesn't make any sense at all. Who are you talking about? And what are you saying?

Nicholas said...
