Assembly, Senate Incumbents Win, New Seneca President

By Staff

Buffalo, NY – All of Western New York's incumbents who ran for the state Senate and Assembly were successful Tuesday.

The one notable exception was in the 141st Assembly district, where Arthur Eve retired after 36 years. Democrat Crystal Peoples captured the seat with 86 percent of the vote, defeating Republican Clifford Scott and At-Large Common Council member Charley Fisher, who ran on the Latino Popular Party line.

In the race for State Supreme Court, Republican Jan Rosa was elected along with Jerome Gorski, an Appellate Division justice who was endorsed by all major parties.

Democrat Shirley Troutman is the apparent winner in the race for Erie County Court Judge, though her Republican opponent, Anne Adams, believes the race is too close to call.

Democrats Sharon LoVallo and Hank Nowak, Junior won the race for Buffalo City Court.

Republican Kevin Carter was elected to Erie County Family Court after being appointed to the seat earlier this year.

The Seneca Party was victorious in Tuesday's Seneca Nation elections. Rickey Armstrong, who is a supporter of the casino pact with New York State, defeated challenger Arnold Cooper, who was against the deal, saying the nation could do better. The eight Tribal Council seats up for election were also taken by the Seneca party.
