UPDATE – 9:45am Wed, Nov 9: Here’s the latest on Hartsville: according to the Steuben County Board of Elections, there are 31 absentee ballots, they don’t know how many affidavits. What we can report at this time, is that the town supervisors race has John Bowles with 153 votes, and Democrat Mike Muhliesan 136 votes. That race cannot be called as of yet. The same is true for the Hartsville town board race where Leon Woodworth has 137 votes and Anita McCann 106 votes, and again, we cannot call that town board race right now. We can tell you that the county board of elections says that Tom DeWall won the Hartsville Highway Superintendent’s race, and that Jessica Henderson won the Hartsville Town Clerk’s race. They cannot, at this time, call the three way town justice race between Maddie Parini, Catherine Burdick and Buddy Gettman.

It’s a great honor to continue representing the 58th District, and a great responsibility. I’m excited about continuing the important work we’ve started together.”
