Broome County Executive Jason Garnar cruised to a second term yesterday with a resounding victory over his Republican opponent Karl Bernhardsen.

We spoke with him over Zoom last night.

“We’re going to work hard every day to make Broome County a better place to live in, a better place to work in. We’re going to work with Republicans and Democrats to create jobs, cut taxes,” says Garnar.

Garnar will still have a large Republican majority on the Broome County Legislature to work with.

All 6 incumbents, including 5 Republicans, won their re-election bids yesterday so the GOP maintains a dominant 10 to 5 advantage in the legislature.
