Weinstein Wins Amherst Super; OP and Hamburg Close



(WBEN) Republican Amherst Supervisor Barry Weinstein as returned to office, rebuffing a challenge from town board member Mark Manna.

Manna who had tried to make development and taxation issues a centerpiece of his campaign lost with 45 percent of the vote to Weinstein's 55 percent in unofficial results posted Wednesday morning.

"I'm a little disappointed that my margin was only 55 to 25. I expected to win by 20 points," Weinstein said in informal remarks at his headquarters on Main St. in Amherst.

"I'd like to point out the voters in Amherst are very sophisticated. They went against an endorsement by Gov. Andrew Cuomo who endorsed my opponent, and the AFL-CIO, and the CSEA and the police club and the highway department. "  Weinstein said.
