Democrats Sweep SL Village Elections

In an interesting development 'Wal-Mart at any cost' Republicans were defeated in yesterdays Saranac Lake Village elections by the Democrats. The Democrats ran on a pro-development agenda but cautioned that the impacts of development on the community must first be discerned. Read more here (WNBZ) and here (ADE).

The vote counts were as follows:

Mayor Michael 838 Branch 579

Trustee Waters 797 Knuth 515

Trustee Fontana 811 Piro 677

Overall Democrats got 28% more votes than Republicans even though Democrats were cast as the anti-Wal-Mart party.

In Maine, Damariscotta residents voted in a 35,000 sq ft size cap in yesterdays elections.
