ELECTION

HEADLINES

Gunther Disassembles Sorensen

Aileen Gunther, widow of the late Assembylman Jake Gunther, has taken the 98th Assembly seat vacancy in votes that reflected a nearly 2 to 1 ratio over former Sullivan County Planning Commissioner Alan Sorensen.

Leg. Shake Up in County Government

Call it sweet revenge or at least a savory recoup of losses for the county’s Democrats. Democratic candidates won back three of the nine legislature seats to change the balance of power on that governing body. Democrats had mounted an organized campaign to take back the seats following a messy party-switching move by District 7’s Leni Binder and District 8’s Bob Kunis left the Democratic Party last June. The two took on the Republican affiliation so that Binder could become legislature chair with Kunis becoming the vice chair.

Upsets in Mamakating, Delaware

In the towns, Mamakating smart-growth advocate Fred Harding, a Democrat, lost the town supervisor’s Race to challenger Republican-Conservative Charles Penna. In Delaware, Democrat incumbent town supervisor Bill Moran lost to Republican-Conservatve Brad Mallet Jr.

Nail Biter in Liberty

In latest counts, Democrat Frank DeMayo had just squeaked past Republican Shirley Lindsley by four votes to lay claim to the town’s top elected post. Long-time supervisor Dick Martinkovic decided to leave the job earlier this year. And in a true photo finish, Lynn Killian and Kevin Mullen, both on the same ticket (Democratic) went home tied 444 apiece in the race for the second open seat on the town board. Tom Hasbrouck handily won the first opening.
