LIVINGSTON COUNTY – Unofficial results say that it was a historic night for the Livingston County Conservative Party.
Mike Falk successfully ran on the Conservative line against Republican and Democratic candidate Colleen Allen. Falk took 851 votes, or 64.13 percent. Allen took 475 votes, or 35.80 percent. This is the first time that a Conservative has been elected to a position on the Livingston County Board of Supervisors.
“Had it not been for the trust that the Conservative Party and Chairman Jason McGuire placed in me back in May, we would not be here today,” said Falk. “It was on Row C that Democrats, Republicans, Conservatives, Independents and many unaffiliated voters came together to demand positive change for our town.
‘The key to our victory was identifying real issues early, and to start doing something about them now—not waiting to be seated as a supervisor. Now, we’re poised to bring Lima into the future, while not neglecting our storied past. Tonight, we have a mandate for a new direction—one that will help us grow our small-business commerce and our overall sense of community. I can’t wait to continue what we’ve started.”
