Polls Open For PrimariesPosted: Updated:
Polls opened at noon Tuesday for a handful of north country primary elections.
Reporter Natalie Kucko was live on 7 News At Noon at Church of the Nazarene, one of the polling places in the city of Watertown.
You can see her report in the video.
Among local races are Watertown city council, Watertown city court judge and a smattering of town supervisor races.
Five candidates are vying for two Watertown city council seats: Ryan Henry-Wilkinson, Lisa Ruggiero, Cliff Olney, and incumbents Steve Jennings and Teresa Macaluso.
After Tuesday's vote, the field will be narrowed down to four who move on to the general election in November.
The city court race pits incumbent judge Catherine Palermo against Anthony Neddo.
Palermo is a Democrat, but she's challenging Neddo on the Republican line. The two are also running on the Conservative and Independence party lines.
"My pledge in the beginning of this race was to meet as many voters as I possibly can and I still am doing that and I won't stop until November," said Neddo.
"My message is I've heard over 20,000 cases. I've been dedicated to the job. I'm on call 24 hours a day and I hope for their support," said Palermo.
Here are the town supervisor races with primaries:
- Champion (Republican): incumbent Bruce Ferguson vs. Jonathan Schell
- Alexandria (Republican): Brent Sweet vs. Daniel Peterson
- Colton (Conservative): John Gray Jr. vs. Kevin Beary
- Oswegatchie (Republican): incumbent Alfred Nichols vs. Michael Hebert
- Lyonsdale (Republican): incumbent Philip Boardman vs. David Butts
