Saranac Lake village elections

Okay, I should probably be getting to sleep; after all, I do need to be in the studio before 6 a.m. tomorrow.

But I'm a political junkie, and I feel the need to publish at least one post regarding the village elections here in Saranac Lake.

Unofficial results have Clyde Rabideau besting Jeff Branch in the mayoral race; Jeff was most gracious in his defeat. It's not easy to walk into a room full of supporters representing the other team and concede.

Allie Pelletieri and Tom Catillaz took the two open trustee seats. The board now consists of two Democrats (Rabideau and Catillaz) and three Republicans (Branch, Pelletieri and John McEneany).

Tom Glover and Ken McLaughlin won the two justice seats.

In Lake Placid, Jason Leon won his bid for a full term as village trustee. He ran unopposed, but did garner 90 votes.

Finally, voters in Port Henry opted out of dissolving the village.

That's it for now -- I'll have plenty more, including response from all the candidates, during tomorrow morning's newscast.
