WINNERS & LOSERS: Election results from across the FLX

Unmistakably, the buzzword after this election season is ‘polarized’.

Nothing describes the state of politics now – at the national or local level – than that word. On the national stage – Republican Donald Trump became the President Elect of the United States. While final results may not come until sometime Wednesday – that result remains likely given the electoral map.

On the local stage, polarizing issues like landfilling took center stage. In Seneca Falls, two candidates whose races were based largely on that single, polarizing issue – saw their fates go by the way of a defacto referendum on the matter. Republicans Lou Ferrara and Thomas Ruzicka defeated appointed Democratic Seneca Falls Town Board members Mary Sarratori and Annette Lutz.

In the race for New York State Senate District 54, candidates fought through a polarized electorate – pointing out the many flaws in each campaign. For Democratic Rose Town Supervisor Kenan Baldridge and Reform Party candidate Floyd Rayburn – the major items were the downstate funding and money flowing into their race for Canandaigua Supervisor Pam Helming. She would go on to win her race handily for the 54th District, and told FingerLakes1.com during it’s Election Night Special that her focus was on serving the communities moving forward in the region.

The Yates County Judge race, which was framed throughout the weeks leading up to Election Day on three polarizing candidates, who all brought their own baggage to the election table. While it’s expected in large, regional races to see candidates call each other names, or take shots – it’s less-expected in smaller elections.

Now, for those who have been elected will have to contend with that polarization and make policy happen.

Below are all of the results from Tuesday’s races in the Finger Lakes.
