In sad losses for Columbia County Democrats,
several Democratic incumbents have lost their races for re-election.
• In the Town of Kinderhook attorney Pat Grattan has beaten Doug McGivney for Kinderhook Supervisor.
• In the Town of Livingston, Kevin McDonald has won over Phil Williams for Livingston Supervisor.
• In the Town of Austerlitz, Jeff Braley is ahead of Democratic incumbent George Jahn for Austerlitz Town Supervisor. The current vote count is Braley 255 votes and Jahn 178. With about 80 absentee ballots issued, Jahn would have to win nearly all of them in order to win the election.
The Columbia County Democratic Committee wishes to thank Supervisors McGivney, Williams and Jahn for their service to the committee, to their towns and to Columbia County.
