Chair Clark’s Narrow Victory

By JIM KEVLIN • Special to www.AllOTSEGO.com

COOPERSTOWN – The “Reform Caucus,” a coalescence of forward-looking minds, decisively took control of the Otsego County Board of Representatives Tuesday, Nov. 7.

The caucus claimed nine of the 14 seats, and 3,746 weighted votes against 2,482 for the stand-pat  coalition that had gathered around county Board Chair Kathy Clark, R-Otego/Laurens.

Strictly along party lines, Democrats rose from a 4-11 deficit to a 7-7 tie, although weighted voting gives Republicans a 3,421 to 2,807 edge.
