FISHKILL, N.Y. -- Bob LaColla has been elected to a second term as Supervisor of Fishkill, though his opponent is not conceding.

According to the Poughkeepsie Journal , Albra said he wants to have the ballots issued on Election Day to be counted by hand before he concedes. Albra said he still thinks he will come out on top.
Republicans Ori Brachfield and Thomas Adams were elected to the town board, defeating Democrats Debra Laham and Joseph Pirrone.
