Democrat Mary Bean was elected the new supervisor of the town of Spafford last week.

Bean received 373 votes to Republican Webb Stevens' 298, according to the Onondaga County Board of Elections website.

In the race for two town council seats, incumbent Chris Fesko and Republican Dave Venezia received the most votes out of five total candidates.

Bean said that she was thrilled to have won and that the victory wouldn’t have been possible without bipartisan support.

“I could not have won the election without significant support from Republicans,” she said. “This is a Republican bastion, it’s been eons since a Democrat was elected supervisor in the town of Spafford.”

Bean received more votes than there are registered Democrat voters in the town. For this election there were 351 Democrats and 610 Republicans out of the 1,282 total registered voters for Spafford. The 688 total ballots cast on Election Day represent a 54 percent voter turnout.

Bean said she was excited to get to work right away when she takes office in January. She wants to work on improving communication with residents, dealing with personnel matters and more.
