David Donaldson was reelected as Chairman of the Ulster County Legislature tonight beating out challenger Jeanette Provanzano for the County's top spot. Dave Doanldson was nominated by Gary Bischoff and both Peter Loughran and Frank Dart spoke to second the nomination of Donaldson.
The vote was conducted by paper ballot and while the results were not in, the election was a close one, probably decided by one or two votes.
Jeanette Provanzano was true to her word and backed off after she lost her caucus to Donaldson. The two embraced and had kind words to say about one another after the vote.
I supported Dave Donaldson from the beginning and I'm very happy that he won and wish him a sincere congratulations.
