Two votes elect Cook as justice

Wednesday, March 19, 2014 - Updated: 10:00 AM

Cook nominated village justice with just two votes

During Tuesday's village election in St. Johnsville, four write in votes were received for village justice, a position vacated last year by Michael Battisti, then filled by Acting Justice Bruce Dye.

Two votes were received for lifelong village resident Scott Cook, who will now be notified of his nomination via an official letter from Village Clerk Karen Crouse. At that point, he will either accept or deny the position. If Cook accepts, he'll have to attend schooling to become state certified. He'll then retain the title of village justice for a three year period, beginning in April, filling out the remainder of Battisti's original term.

The additional two write in votes were for Michael Bartlett and Gerry Warn.

In the village of Palatine Bridge, 11 voters turned out to cast ballots for Peter Briele, running unopposed to fill the councilperson seat vacated last year by Beth Shostek. Briele will retain the position until 2017.
