Dan Buttermann

ONEONTA – Dan Buttermann has won the Democratic primary in the 121st District, the candidate confirmed a few minutes ago, although he said the numbers are not “official” until the count of Otsego County absentee ballots is completed Monday.

That was echoed by his campaign manager, Martha Moore, Cazenovia, who added, “His opponent” – Hamilton farmer Corey Mosher – “has conceded.  Dan is ahead.  He won Oneida.  Madison County was close.  His opponent won it, but it was not enough to overcome (Buttermann’s) lead.”

While the Otsego County absentee count is not complete, it is expected Buttermann, an Oneontan, will win the county, she said.
