District Attorney hopefuls battle to the wire"
Express (Gwen Chamberlain)
ago, as an independent candidate, Valerie Gardner defeated Republican
incumbent Jason Cook to win the Yates County District Attorney race. Last
year, she fell to Cook in the race for Yates County Judge, and this year she
is being challenged in a heated campaign with independent Todd Casella,
Steuben County Assistant District Attorney.
Their battle has
included legal challenges that ended up in courtroom arguments over the
validity of petitions. As a result, Casella was not allowed to challenge
Gardner in the Republican Primary in September, but his name will appear on
the Independence and Reform lines.
