Daily Freeman (Kingston, NY) - - LOCAL NEWS - Free­man staff

Repub­li­can Brian Miller came out on top in a three-way race for the state’s 101st As­sem­bly’s Dis­trict seat.

Miller, of New Hart­ford, bested Demo­crat Arlene Feld­meier and Con­ser­va­tive Maria Kelso for the seat be­ing va­cated by Repub­li­can Clau­dia Ten­ney, who ran in a three-way race for the state’s 22nd Con­gres­sional Dis­trict seat.

In un­of­fi­cial vote re­sults across the six-county 101st dis­trict, Miller gar­nered 25,910 votes, Feld­meier tal­lied 16,577, and Kelso earned 4,965. Kelso did not ac­tively cam­paign for the seat.

Miller is a 16-year Oneida County leg­is­la­tor who served for eight years as su­per­vi­sor of the town of Bridge­wa­ter.

He has said the state Leg­is­la­ture “should work to de­velop pro­grams and ini­tia­tives that as­sist our small busi­nesses and man­u­fac­tur­ers in in­creas­ing their tech­nol­ogy in their man­u­fac­tur­ing pro­cesses” and “in­vest in our com­mu­nity col­leges to increase ed­u­ca­tional op­por­tu­ni­ties for mod­ern­iz­ing our work­force.

He also has called for lower taxes and has said the state must stop mak­ing coun­ties com­pete against each other for jobs and eco­nomic de­vel­op­ment fund­ing.

Feld­meier, who has lived in Lit­tle Falls since Au­gust 2001, is a for­mer se­nior at­tor­ney with the U.S. So­cial Se­cu­rity Ad­min­is­tra­tion.

The long, nar­row 101st As­sem­bly Dis­trict stretches from Oneida to Orange coun­ties and in­cludes the towns of An­des in Delaware County and Har­den­burgh, Denning, Wawars­ing and Shawan­gunk in Ul­ster County.
