Palumbo edges Polimeni in close race for Canandaigua mayor

When the votes were counted Tuesday night, Councilmember Bob Palumbo had pulled off what could be considered a stunning upset of longtime Mayor Ellen Polimeni.

Only 83 votes separated the two at the end of the night; Palumbo had 1,357 votes to Polimeni’s 1,274 votes, according to the Ontario County Board of Elections.

“I knew it was going to be a very, very tight race,” Palumbo said Tuesday night. “It hasn’t hit home yet. But we had a lot of great supporters, a lot of hard work and I’m very happy with the results.”
