Lancaster Town Clerk Terranova wins Democratic and Conservative lines, will face GOP's Desiderio

Incumbent Diane M. Terranova beat newcomer and endorsed candidate Cynthia A. Maciejewski in the Democratic primary for Lancaster town clerk Tuesday.

Terranova had 55% of the vote to Maciejewski's 45%, with 100% of precincts reporting.

Terranova also had an easy victory on the Conservative line at 81%, over Donald Biondo, 58, who got 9% and Brian Sabatino, 44, who had 9%.

But she lost by a wide margin to Anne V. Desiderio, 54, in the Republican primary, meaning they will square off in November. Desiderio had 71% to Terranova's 29%.

The embattled Terranova, who was denied her party’s backing, was endorsed by the Lancaster Republican Committee and Erie County Conservative Party.

Maciejewski worked 21 years as a clerk in the Lancaster Building and Zoning Department. She received the Democratic and Working Families endorsements.

Desiderio, a health-care representative for more than 25 years and lifelong Republican, was supported by the state committee of the Independence Party.
