SHERBURNE – Today, Jermaine Bagnall-Graham made it official: He is running for the Democratic nomination to challenge state Sen. Jim Seward, R-Milford, this fall for the 51st District Seat.
His prospective candidate was first reported two weeks ago on www.allotsego.com.
Audrey Dunning, a lawyer from Ilion, has already announced she intends to seek the nomination in the 51st, setting up a primary in advance of the general election.
POLLS OPEN UNTIL 9 P.M.
FOR GOVERNOR, CONGRESS
COOPERSTOWN – When the county’s Republican candidates can all be found partaking of pancakes and sausage in the front window of the Vets Club on Main Street, you can bet it’s Election Day. And today, as Cooperstown Rotarians served their traditional Election Day pancake breakfast, it is.
Governor Cuomo is being challenged by Republican Rob Astorino. Congressman Chris Gibson, R-19, who is expected at the Vets Club before noon, is being challenged by newcomer Sean Eldridge, the Democrat. There are statewide races for attorney general and controller.
Locally, county Sheriff Richard J. Devlin Jr. is unopposed. The hottest local race, perhaps, is in the Town of Oneonta, where Town Board member Trish Riddell Kent, who was appointed Jan. 1, is being challenged by David Rowley, the retired school superintendent.
Polls are open until 9 p.m., with all Oneonta voting at Foothills, and all Cooperstown voting at St. Mary’s “Our Lady of the Lake” Church Hall.
