Former Broome District Attorney Poised to Take the Bench
A former Broome County District Attorney is poised to don judicial robes in the race for Family Court Judge in Broome County.
Unofficial election night results put Republican Steve Cornwell ahead of Democrat Holly Levine in the race for Family Court 37,192 votes to 31,908.
There were several uncontested races for Broome County Towns, including for Supervisor but one crowded contest was in the Town of Union where Republicans and Democrats faced off for two Trustee seats that were on the ballot. The Republican incumbents defeated both Democratic challengers with Thomas Augostini getting the most votes at 11,496, Frank Bertoni with 10,015 followed by Democrats Lori Wahila with 7,988 and Kevin Every Senior with 7,460 votes.
In Pennsylvania, Republicans will continue to buck Democrat Governor Tom Wolf’s administration with the GOP even making greater inroads. The Pennsylvania Attorney General race has Republican challenger Heather Heidelbaugh defeating incumbent Democrat Joseph Shapiro by 532,696 votes with absentee ballots still to be tallied. Pennsylvania was not opening any mail-in ballots until November 4 and could receive ballots with the November 3 postmark for several days after the election.
The election results are not final and are not certified. Broome County won’t be counting absentee ballots and certifying a vote for another two weeks.
