Four from HWS do well at polls

Incumbent Judge Matthew Rosenbaum '86 was elected to a full 14-year term on the State Supreme Court in Tuesday balloting. He and fellow Republican John M. Owens carried the Seventh Judicial District with about one-third of all votes cast; Democrats Ellen Yacknin and Kirk Miller, who also campaigned on campus, received about 20 and 15 percent of the votes cast, respectively. Five candidates were seeking two seats on the court.

In Monroe County, Democrat Steve Eckel was re-elected to another term representing the 26th District on the County Legislature. Eckel, an assistant professor of art at HWS, received about 2,256 votes to 1,961 for Tom Ferraro.

In the Town of Geneva, Democratic incumbent supervisor Mary Luckern turned back a challenge by Patrick Riley, 899 to 456. Luckern is a retired principal at North Street Elementary School in Geneva and a former student teaching supervisor at HWS. Riley's wife, Barbara, is the daughter of Professor of Music Nicholas V. D'Angelo.

In the City of Geneva, Democratic incumbent Charles Evangelista P'05 P'09 was re-elected to another term on the Ontario County Board of Supervisors, 615-219, over Democratic Challenger Donald Damick. Evangelista is also an assistant coach of the Herons basketball team.

All results are unofficial pending the opening and tallying of absentee ballots.
