Democrats Win in Ballston Spa

 

BALLSTON SPA — Two out of three Democrats achieved polit- ical victory this week in a vil- lage government controlled for decades by Republicans.

Democrats Shawn Raymond and Noah Shaw both won seats on the Ballston Spa Village Board by a combined total of roughly 100 votes. Republican Village Justice Michael Morrissey held on to his seat by 70 votes despite a significant tally of 363 for his challenger: Erika Tebbens, a third Democrat in the race.

The results in Ballston Spa were announced shortly after 10 p.m. in a crowded Village Hall on Front Street. “Congratulations to the winners and the losers,” stated Mayor John Romano, after the final two boxes of ballots had been delivered by election officials.

Throughout the day, more than 2,300 votes were cast inside the village’s two firehouses—twice as many as during the 2015 elec- tion. Romano said the village has about 4,400 eligible voters.De
