Bean elected supervisor of Spafford

Fesko, Venezia win town councilor seats

Stevens was seeking his fifth term as supervisor of Spafford, he has held that position for the past eight years in addition to time spent as town justice and town assessor. He had no comment when contacted about the results of the election.

Fesko was the only incumbent and the other four candidates, as well as Bean, had never held an elected post.

The current makeup of the Spafford town board is three Republicans and two Democrats. That will change to three Democrats and two Republicans for the next two year following these results. Joining Fesko, Bean and Venezia in January will be councilors Republican Jeff Ireland and Democrat Louis Hanlon who will both be up for re-election in 2015.

Town supervisor in Spafford is a two-year term, while town council, town clerk, town tax collector and highway superintendent are all 4-year terms.

The results will be official once the board of elections tallies absentee ballots and certifies the results on Nov. 14.
