The surprise from Tuesday’s slate of village elections was the loss of incumbent Waterloo Trustee David Duprey who has served on the board since 1996.
In races that generated very few votes — Democrat Gina Suffredini and Republican John Butlak both secured seats on the Village Board.
Butlak received 250 votes, while Suffredini secured 213. While there are still 44 votes remaining to be counted; in form of absentee ballots — the margins are such currently that it would require most of the votes to go Duprey’s way.
That said, the results are still “unofficial.”
Those absentee ballots will be counted on Tuesday at 10 am.
Duprey secured 195 votes, finishing in third place. While Brian Preston and Damon Monroe secured 92 and 66 votes each.
