Touma wins re-election to Niagara Falls Council; Kennedy, Voccio are other winners

One Democratic incumbent was re-elected and one was defeated in the race for three Niagara Falls City Council seats Tuesday.

Councilman Andrew P. Touma won a second term, but another incumbent, Kristen M. Grandinetti, was last in the six-person field, according to complete but unofficial Board of Election returns.

The leading vote-getter was Democratic newcomer William D. Kennedy II, with Touma coming in second. The Republicans won the third seat, with former Niagara Gazette publisher Christopher P. Voccio, who quit journalism to enter politics.

Robert D. Pascoal finished fourth and Samuel F. Archie fifth. Both are Republicans.

Democrats will have a 3-2 edge on the 2018 Council.
