Sidonio has slim lead over Miller in Murray with absentees to determine winner

MURRAY – Murray residents will have to wait a week to find out the winner of the race for town supervisor because the election is too close to call.

Joe Sidonio leads Robert Miller, 558-542, with 80 absentee ballots to be counted.

It feels like déjà vu from the Republican primary when Sidonio had a 7-vote lead when the polls closed. Miller, however, emerged the victor when the absentees were counted, getting 19 to Sidonio’s 5.

Sidonio had a rematch today under the Conservative and Independence parties. (The incumbent town supervisor, John Morriss, didn’t seek re-election.)

Some other results in Murray include Michael Mele, 801 votes, and Paul Hendel, 723, being elected as councilman. Michael Whalen received 225 under the Conservative line.

Tonia Ettinger and Sanford Church both received 509 votes in Murray for Orleans County judge, which is a county-wide race.
