Election results: Casella tops Gardner

YATES COUNTY--The statewide general election was held Tuesday, Nov. 7, where residents voted for elected officials and weighed in on various ballot propositions.
The two highest profile decisions the vote settled in Yates County were the district attorney race and the ballot propositions in Barrington relating to alcohol.
In unofficial results, Todd Casella received 2,704 votes to incumbent Valerie Gardner's 2,435 for the district attorney position. While there are still absentee votes that need to be added to final totals, the two contestants issued statements after the vote totals were announced.
"What a night. I am truly humbled by the tremendous honor that the people of Yates County have bestowed on me by electing me as your new District Attorney," said Casella late Tuesday night. "Thank you to those who voted for me and to those who volunteered their time to help my campaign. A special thanks also goes out to my family for enduring a very challenging year to get us to this victory today. I couldn't have done it without them. I would also like to thank Valerie Gardner for her service as D.A. Serving in public office and running for election is not easy, and I commend her for her efforts. Now the hard work begins - and I won't let you down."
Gardner in part said, "Preliminary results are in and although there are still over 500 absentee ballots to be counted, it appears that my service to you as your district attorney will end Dec. 31. It has been my great honor and privilege to serve you and I am proud of the progress we have made in the last four years."
Residents in Barrington supported all the alcohol license categories: tavern (308 yes to 80 no), restaurant (327 yes to 62 no) and hotel (329 yes to 57 no). John Kuehn defeated Eileen Farnan 244 to 123 for the town supervisor position in the town.
