Primary Day ends with a few surprises


Polhemus did not return messages from the Press-Republican seeking comment.

Giroux is retiring and not seeking re-election this year.

Tuesday’s results in all Clinton County races are unofficial and will be updated Wednesday after the write-in ballots are counted. There were several write-in ballots in races around the county in what is known as an opportunity to ballot.

Absentee ballots for all races will also be counted in about a week.


In Ticonderoga, the town supervisor expressed disappointment over her loss to Grinnell.

But she said she is looking forward to the general election, when she’ll be on the ballot as an independent.

“I’m going to be going door to door,” Malaney said. “I have to work hard.”

Incumbent Minerva Supervisor Sue Montgomery Corey won the Democratic primary over her opponent, Stephen McNally, a town councilor.

Corey said she was excited to have taken her race.

“Minerva is a small town,” she said. “I appreciate the support.”

McNally is running as an independent and will be back in November.

Only nine towns had primary races, and most candidates also filed as independent and will still be on the Nov. 5 general election ballot. 


In Franklin County, Carl Sherwin beat out Paul Hogan in the Democratic primary for Legislature District 4.

He will try to unseat incumbent Marc “Tim” Lashomb (R-Malone) in the November election.

Here are unofficial results from races around Clinton, Essex and Franklin counties:


Area 4 legislator: Gerard A. Renadette (I), 21, with 16 untallied write-ins.

Area 10 legislator: Richard S. Perry (I), 17 votes; 24 write-ins yet to open.

Treasurer: Susan E. Polhemus (I), 81 votes and 83 write-ins yet to tally.


Mayor: James E. Calnon (I), 45 votes; 27 write-ins not tallied yet.

Common Council Ward 1: Rachelle C. Armstrong (D), brought in 142 votes to best Timothy R. Carpenter (D), 20.
