Lussier victory in the US
Dave Lussier, Green Party candidate for Albany County Legislature (7th District), claimed a victory Tuesday night. With all election districts reporting, Lussier leads by 531 to 526 against Democratic Brian Scavo.
The Board of Elections this evening informed Lussier campaign manager Peter LaVenia that the paper ballots (absentee and affidavits) will be counted a week from this Wednesday.
Lussier thanked the many neighborhood activists who supported his candidacy in the closing month of the elections, as well as Green party supporters who volunteered hundreds of hours to support his candidacy.
