Syracuse Mayor Stephanie Miner reelected to second term
Wed, 06 Nov 2013 03:02:34 GMT —
Stephanie Miner cruised to easy victory Tuesday evening, capping a quiet election that was largely decided when she was victorious in the September primary race. After the final tally, Stephanie Miner won with 67.8% of the vote. Ian Hunter finished with 15.5% and Kevin Bott ended the night at 15.2%.
Miner, a Democrat, has been elected to a second term leading the largest city in Central New York. Republicans failed to field a candidate in the race, however Miner did see challenges from the Green Party's Kevin Bott and Ian Hunter on the Conservative Party line.
Bott, who entered the race just seven weeks ago, saw tonight's results as an encouraging step for the Green Party in Syracuse.
"We're fighting the good fight," said Bott. "I feel really proud of what my team was able to accomplish in seven short weeks and without a televised debate, which I think could have really changed people's perceptions about the Green Party."
Miner turned down several requests for a debate leading up to election night.
