Tally incomplete in 4th Judicial District
4TH JUDICIAL DISTRICT The race for two open state Supreme Court seats in the 4th Judicial District was too close to call late Tuesday night.
Only 35 percent of precincts had reported results from that district by The Daily Gazette’s print deadline. As of 11:30 p.m., incumbent Justice Thomas Nolan had obtained 36 percent of the tally with 36,219 votes; Washington County Court Judge Stan Pritzker had won 34 percent with 34,156 votes; and Schenectady County Family Court Judge Mark Powers had won 29 percent with 28,914 votes.
The 4th Judicial District covers 11 counties, including Schenectady, Saratoga, Montgomery and Fulton counties. It runs north to the Canadian border.
Pritzker, 56, of Hartford, has been acting state Supreme Court justice since 2007. Powers, 58, is in his 12th year as Schenectady County Family Court judge. He has spent 10 of those years as an acting Supreme Court justice, as well.
