Absentee Ballots May Erase
Chair Clark’s Narrow Victory
By JIM KEVLIN • Special to www.AllOTSEGO.com
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.
