Wait­ing on ab­sen­tee bal­lots

NY22, NY121 too close to call af­ter Tues­day elec­tions

The Oneida Daily Dispatch (Oneida, NY) - - Front Page - By The Dis­patch Staff news­room@onei­dadis­patch.com@Onei­daDis­patch on Twit­ter

Two Cen­tral New York races will be de­cided by ab­sen­tee bal­lots af­ter tight races for both the 22nd Con­gres­sional Dis­trict and the 121st Assem­bly Dis­trict.

Un­of­fi­cial re­sults cur­rently have Assem­bly An­thony Brin­disi, a Demo­crat, lead­ing Repub­li­can Con­gress­woman Clau­dia Ten­ney by 1,422 for NY22. Brook­field Su­per­vi­sor John Salka, a Repub­li­can, ap­pears poised to oust long­time Demo­cratic in­cum­bent Bill Magee in the ru­ral 121st Dis­trict, as he leads by 963 votes.

Magee says around there are about 3,000 ab­sen­tee bal­lots still out­stand­ing and his cam­paign in­tends to wait un­til ev­ery vote is counted be­fore mak­ing a de­ci­sion on what to do.

When asked what his fu­ture plans were af­ter the elec­tion, whether or not he re­tains his seat, Magee said he has not thought about that yet. When asked if he would run again if he lost his seat as assem­bly­man, Magee said that it was de­ci­sion hewas not pre­pared to make to­day.

“I’ve had a num­ber of years I’ve en­joyed, and I think I did agood job,” Magee said. “But ap­par­ently, some peo­ple said I’ve been there long enough.”

Salka said he and his cam­paign are pleased and guard­edly op­ti­mistic about the re­sults and the fi­nal tally.

“We’ve worked very hard to get where we are right now,” Salka said. “We’re en­er­gized and look­ing for­ward to serv­ing the peo­ple of the 121st Dis­trict. I hit the ground run­ning this morn­ing and had break­fast at the lo­cal diner and talked with small busi­ness­men al­ready and what’s on their mind.”

Salka said if he is elected to the assem­bly his po­si­tion would goto his deputy su­per­vi­sor Jeff May ne, whom he hasw orked with for 11 years.

“I trust I’d be leav­ing the re­spon­si­bil­i­ties of Brook­field in good hand,” Salka said. “But I’ll be Brook­field’s assem­bly­man, so I won’t be far.”

The Ten­ney cam­paign said the race for the 22nd is “too close to call” with more than 12,000 ab­sen­tee bal­lots and “thou­sands of af­fi­davit bal­lots still to be counted.”

“This race will be de­cided when all the votes have been counted, and we will con­tinue to work with our le­gal team and the elec­toral boards in each county to en­sure the votes are counted ac­cu­rately and fairly,” said Ten­ney cam­paign man­ager Ray­chel Renna.

In a state­ment from the Brin­disi cam­paign, Brin­disi said when the ab­sen­tee bal- lots get their fi­nal tally, he is pos­i­tive their strong lead will stand.

“We had a his­toric night last night and it was be­cause of you and the fine peo­ple of this dis­trict,” Brin­disi said. “From the amaz­ing vol­un­teers who pow­ered this cam­paign to the folks who knocked, phoned and pe­ti­tioned, you set this cam­paign on its win­ning path.”

The fol­low­ing is a break­down of state and lo­cal races and how they played out be­tween Madi­son and Oneida county vot­ers.
