Absentee tallies determined winners in some local races, including Town of Wind (Cape Vincent) where the outsiders beat the insiders with a rash of absentees. Well to do cottagers (aka summer homes) have been registering to vote in the Cape to influence decisions on wind power.....That gave Urban Hirschey the win...but he's a nice guy. The Town board cut his pay before taking office , a rather downscale thing to do.....But since he is anti-wind, I guess they figured he could afford it. Urban is the former owner of Climax Manufacturing which he recently sold.
