Burpoe, Crossman win; GOP gains two seats

The two local incumbents facing challenges yesterday for their seats on the Franklin County Board of Legislators held on, and the Democrats retained a slim majority.

Democratic incumbent Timothy Burpoe fended off a strong challenge from Republican Betsy Nicastro in the race for the District 7 seat, winning that race 1,061 to 845.

Meanwhile, in District 3, incumbent Democrat Gordon Crossman also edged out his Republican challenger, Besser McKee Hanna, by a margin of 901 to 852.

The county’s GOP base did pick up two seats in the legislative body.

Some 767 absentee ballots remain to be counted in Franklin County.
