Absentee ballots were opened on Wednesday morning to decide the winner of the close race for highway superintendent in Berne, where Democrats outnumber Republicans by nearly 3 to 1. The Republican won by 26 votes. "The fat lady has sung," said the Democratic Party chairman.

Deborah Busch, who represents a portion of the Hilltowns, said the experience demonstrated to her government failure, and malice and changed her views on the death penalty.

Democrats, who outnumber Republicans in Berne nearly 3 to 1, will need to surmount 17 votes held by the Republican Randy Bashwinger as absentee ballots are counted for the election of a new highway superintendent.

The position was decided several months ago when Bates, a Democrat and deputy sheriff, was endorsed by all four parties. Sitting Judge Timothy Miller, a Democrat, didn’t run for another term.
