Democrats choose Jaunita Perez Williams as their nominee in the Syracuse race for mayor over the candidate party leaders choose earlier this summer. Williams out-polled Joe Nicoletti by a 52% to 34% margin. Marti Masterpole, the third candidate on the ballot drew about 10% of the vote in Tuesday’s primary.
Perez Williams expressed her pride in the city, and sounded a theme of collaboration. The former city attorney and Cuomo administration official says Syracuse welcomed her decades ago, and she wants everyone to feel the same way.
