Election Changes Richfield Lineup

A fairly large turnout of voters in the Town of Richfield will send new leadership to the Town Board in January.

Highway Superintendent Tim Proctor was re-elected with 415 votes to 160 for Randy Seamon.


Rex Seamon and Larry Frigault were both re-elected as Town Councilmen, although 282 votes went to other candidates as a write-in.


Keith McCarty remains the legislator for the Otsego County’s Ninth District, garnering 603 votes to 278 for challenge Connie Jastremski.


In Plainfield, with no contested elections, 182 people voted.
