CLARK STILL LACKS

VOTES TO KEEP JOB

By JIM KEVLIN • Special to www.AllOTSEGO.com

COOPERSTOWN – According to tally just received, Kathy Clark, R-Otego, still lacks sufficient votes to keep her chairmanship of the Otsego County Board of Representatives.

Clark has six of the 14 votes, a minority.  Under the board’s weighted voting system, those county reps have more-than-average clout, but their combined votes only add up to 2,842, still short of the 3,084 votes she needs for reelection.

The six are said to be Clark (559), Ed Frazier, R-Unadilla (455), Jim Powers, R-Butternuts (495), Meg Kennedy, R-Hartwick (626), Keith McCarty, R-East Springfield (377), and Craig Gelbsman, R-Oneonta (330).

If Clark’s challenger, county Rep. Len Carson, R-Oneonta, can keep the support of Republicans Peter Oberacker, Maryland, David Bliss, Cooperstown/Middlefield, and Dan Wilber, R-Garrattsville, and Democrats Andrew Stammel, Town of Oneonta, Andrew Marietta, D-Cooperstown/Otsego, and Gary Koutnik and Kay Stuligross, both of Oneonta, he will be board chair by noon Wednesday.
