Collins comes out ahead in Democratic primary for third ward

According to unofficial results from the Montgomery County Board of Elections, Irene Collins has come out ahead of Art Iannuzzi in the Democratic primary for the City of Amsterdam third ward common council seat.

Polling results show Collins with 97 votes, Iannuzzi with 64, and no write-ins. According to the board of elections, there were 24 absentee ballots issued and yet to be counted, which are not enough to change the winner. The absentee ballots will be counted sometime next week, however an exact date has not been released yet.

The board is scheduled to certify the results on September 24. If the unofficial results hold, Collins will appear on the general election ballot on the Democratic party line and Iannuzzi will appear on the Conservative party line. No other candidates will appear on the ballot.
