Smith Wins Tight Race
It went down to the wire! Former Southeast Town Judge James Borkowski was leading two-term Sheriff Donald Smith in Tuesday’s Republican Primary by 87 votes with two districts to report. Those election precincts in Kent and Patterson made the difference and the sheriff eked out a win by a margin of 169 votes. The tally announced at Board of Elections headquarters—Smith-2343, Borkowski-2174 and DeStefano-347.
