Newark Mayor Jonathan Taylor wins another term: Incumbent trustees hold on as well

Newark Mayor Jonathan Taylor has won re-election.

He was challenged by David Christler, who was down by less than 100 votes after Election Day.

While the challenger admitted it would be difficult to overcome the deficit with absentee ballots, Taylor held off telling FingerLakes1.com “anything is possible.”

Fast-forward to Tuesday, November 15th and the absentee ballots were counted – giving Taylor another term.


“It is an honor to serve as the mayor in the village of Newark,” he said after. “I am excited to keep working on the vision that we have created together as a community over the last eight years. We have a lot of work ahead of us. I look forward to the challenges and opportunities that we will face together.”

He hinted more big announcements for the village, which has won an array of state funding over the last several years under Taylor’s leadership.

Incumbent Village Trustees Stuart Blodgett and Robert Bendix were also successful in their bids for re-election.

“I would like to thank the residents of Newark for placing their trust in me to serve another four years as trustee,” Blodgett said. “Winning this recent election is an honor that I don’t take lightly as I represent all residents, employees, and employers in our great village.”

Bendix was also excited about the outcome. “I am thrilled and excited to continue the great work we have started for the village,” he added.
