Mayor Keehn Wins the Primary

Wednesday, September 19th, 2007 · No Comments

Big congrats to Mayor Valerie Keehn on her crushing victory in yesterday’s primary elections here in Saratoga Springs!

“The People’s Mayor” earned her self-proclaimed title Tuesday with a commanding victory over challenger Gordon Boyd in the Democratic primary.

Mayor Valerie Keehn was pumping her arms, thumbs up, after only a few elections districts reported in Tuesday night.

“Wow,” she said on her way to a 1,146 to 609 victory according to unofficial results – a margin of nearly two to one. She won every district but three – the 24th was tied, and Boyd won the 19th and 25th by a combined five votes.

Keehn won the office two years ago with the city-wide Democratic sweep — that night Jen and I were thrilled to be part of the victory celebrations.

This is great momentum toward a November win in the general election.
