Upset In Sackets Harbor Mayoral Race

Upset In Sackets Harbor Mayoral Race

Posted: Updated:

There has been an upset in the race for mayor in Sackets Harbor.

According to unofficial results, incumbent Vince Battista was defeated by challenger Molly Reilly.

The vote comes less than a week after Battista announced that Hi-Lite Airfield Services will bring 40 new jobs to the village when it builds its headquarters there.

The announcement ruffled feathers in the community as village trustees, including Reilly, were never told about the deal.

"I think this has been poorly managed," Reilly said last week. "As mayor I know that is something I will not tolerate. I will not tolerate a lack of openness."
