Big win for Dechene in Tupper Lake

The race to decide Tupper Lake’s next town highway superintendent wasn’t even close Tuesday.

Deputy Highway Superintendent Bill Dechene – running on the Republican and Maple Leaf lines – handily defeated Democrat and town Supervisor Roger Amell as well as former Tupper Lake Village Trustee Tim Larkin.

Unofficial numbers from the Franklin County Board of Elections show Dechene pulling 1,139 votse, with Amell and Larkin tallying at 372 and 65 votes, respectively.

The three men were running for the seat vacated last April by former Highway Superintendent Mark Lavigne.
