Election: Wait 'Til Next Year in Cayuga Heights

Tuesday's vote for mayor and trustees in Cayuga Heights surprises us. Largely a referendum on the deer population (see previous Ithaca Blog posting), the winners (quite decisively) were the candidates supporting deer-shooting.

We had the idea that Cayuga Heightsters were more liberal. We guess not, where one's rhododendrons are concerned.

We talked to one of the losing anti-shooting candidates. He was practical about it.

"Now they have a year to make it work. It won't work. And then we'll have another election."
