Following Tuesday’s primaries, there will be some new names on City of Kingston ballots for this November’s general election.
In the District 5 county legislature Democratic primary, Ward 1 Alderwoman Lynn Eckert rolled right over longtime incumbent Legislator Pete Loughran 304-110.
In the Ward 5 Democratic primary, incumbent Alderman Bill Carey fended off 52-32 an opportunity to ballot write-in campaign from Teryl Mickens. Mickens holds the GOP, Conservative and Independence party lines in November’s election.
In the Seventh Ward, party pick Bryant Drew Andrews lost the line to opportunity to ballot candidate Patrick O’Reilly. O’Reilly, who is not enrolled in a political party, also secured the GOP line in an opportunity to ballot primary and already has the Conservative and Independence lines, making him a near-certainty for election to the Common Council in November.
In the Eighth Ward, incumbent Alderman Steve Schabot came out on top in a three-way Democratic primary, garnering 70 votes. Challenger Cassandra Burke got 58; James Rodden collected 36. Rodden, chair of the city Zoning Board of Appeals, will appear on the Republican, Conservative and Independence lines in November.
All results are unofficial.
