Sheriff ‘Very Pleased’ As Results Finalized

Sheriff ‘Very Pleased’

As Results Finalized

A few minutes ago, results from the Otsego County Board of Elections confirmed state Sen. Jim Seward’s Election Night confidence in congratulating County Sheriff Richard J. Devlin, Jr., on winning a fourth four-year term.  In reaction to this evening’s news that a canvass has confirmed his reelection, Sheriff Devlin said a few moments ago, “We’re very pleased with the outcome.  It’s consistent with what votes were running on Election Night.  We’re pleased with the results and look forward to serving  residents for another four years.”  His opponent, retired state trooper Bob Fernandez, declined to concede Election Night, and a call to him this evening was not immediately returned.  (AllOTSEGO.com photo)
