When the votes were counted Tuesday, incumbent Mayor Leigh MacKerchar was defeated by Deputy Mayor Dan Condella 259-256. The three vote margin triggered an automatic recount under state law and FingerLakesDailyNews.com reports the recount has confirmed Condella’s election.

Village Trustees Norman Koek and Teresa Hoban were re-elected. Daniel Irwin was elected for the first time. The top three were elected from a field of seven.
