Democratic Party to Hold Primary Today

Print More

The Town of Ithaca will hold a primary election for the Democratic Party today. Polls will be open from noon to 9 p.m.
The town supervisor and three town council positions are up for election this year, but only the supervisor race involves a primary.
Town Council member Herb Engman, a senior extension associate in the Department of Human Development, is running against incumbent Town Supervisor Cathy Valentino, who has served for 12 years.
There are no announced Republican candidates. If Engman loses the Democratic primary, he will run as part of the Working Families Party. Valentino filed to run as part of the Sensible Government Party, but did not collect enough valid signatures.
The general election will be held Nov. 6.
