Marshall wins close-call race in Richmond

The first order of business Tuesday in the count of Ontario County absentee ballots from the Nov. 5 election was the Richmond town supervisor race. Supporters for both candidates — incumbent Caroline Sauers and challenger Daryl Marshall — packed inside the Ontario County Board of Elections office for the count. Daryl and his wife, Ide, stood quietly against one wall. Sauers was not on hand for the count due to another commitment, though several people were there for her.

With just 17 votes giving Marhall the edge on election night, the outcome could have gone either way. There were 45 ballots to be counted. In less than an hour, the final tally officially handed Marshall a win by 14 votes.

In what was a three-way race for town supervisor, the result was 495 votes for Marshall, 481 for Sauers, and 185 for Randall Walker.
