We had a little excitement here in Syracuse on Tuesday with a 3-way Mayoral election, an uncontested new Common Council President (Van Robinson), and a Green Party candidate (Howie Hawkins) obtaining 41% of the vote for the 4th District Common Council (so close!).

Stephanie Miner (D) is the new mayor of Syracuse. She is not only the first woman to hold the position of mayor in any major upstate city but is also a level-headed and aggressive Progressive. We need more of 'em and a large dollop of innovation to boot here in Syracuse. Mayor Miner, best wishes and keep fighting the good fight!
