Douglas DeMarche Jr. proved to be a favorite in Tuesday's Primary Election for Cicero town justice.
According to an unofficial tally on onvote.ongov.net, DeMarche, running on both the Independence and Conservative party lines, had a total of 43 and 76 votes, respectively. His competitor, Robert Bertrand, earned 27 votes on the Independence line and 31 as a Conservative.
DeMarche and Bertrand, both attorneys, were vying for current Town Justice Carl Putzer's seat. Putzer, who has served as one of the town's judges for 16 years, is not seeking a fifth term.
With a victory in the Primary Election, DeMarche will move on and have his name on the ballot for the Nov. 2 General Election.
