If all vote totals hold, Deana Michaels, a branch manager for Pathfinder Bank, will become mayor of Fulton come Jan. 1.

Thomas Benedetto, of Amboy, will take a seat on the Oswego County Family Court bench as a judge come the new year.

The countywide proposition to increase the term of office for county legislators from two years to four years crashed and burned, being defeated almost by a 2 to 1 margin — 11,516 no to 6,185 yes.

And Oswego Mayor William Barlow Jr. and District Attorney Gregory Oakes were re-elected. Both ran unopposed.

In contested legislature seats, Republican Michael Yerdon won District 1 (Sandy Creek, Boylston, Redfield), taking over for the retiring Margaret Kastler while Republican Herbert Yerdon won District 2 (all of Orwell, Albon and Williamstown and part of Richland), taking over for retiring Milferd Potter.

Shane Broadwell decided not to run again in District 17, covering part of the city of Oswego and Scriba. Taking his place come Jan. 1 will be Republican Laurie Mangano-Cornelius.

The legislature will consist of two Democrats and 23 Republicans as of January. Right now, there are five Democrats and 20 Republicans.

In Palermo, only one person was running for two open council seats, so perhaps the other seat will be filled with a write-in candidate.
