Hakes takes Council seat in town of Marcellus, second seat still undecided

— Town of Marcellus residents will see two new Town Councilors this January. One of those seats, however, remains undecided.

Candidate Peter Hakes takes a seat as town councilor with 812 ballots. Mary Jo Paul, a village of Marcellus trustee, currently leads the race to take the other seat with 610 votes to incumbent Donald Sherman's 605 votes.

Sixty-seven absentee ballots remain uncounted. Final results will be available Thursday, Nov. 17.

Hakes is from Mount Morris, a small town south of Rochester, and settled in Marcellus in 2006. An attorney with offices located on South Street Road, Hakes hopes to bring a “new, younger perspective to the town.”

Results for uncontested Marcellus races can be viewed here.

Results are unofficial until verified by the Onondaga County Board of Elections.

OK, was Mary Jo Paul not on the community party (communist) line? I don't care if she's male or female or what her "perspective" is if she's a communist!
