Brindisi leads Tenney by 13 votes in the race for NY-22

first_imgOswego County Supreme Court Justice Scott DelConte issued an injunction preventing the county board of elections from certifying the vote until the court allows them to do so. According to the statement, the campaign claims it has overtaken the lead from Republican challenger Claudia Tenney. “Election results from the remaining counties in the district show Anthony Brindisi has now taken the lead,” the statement read. “We are hopeful that once New York’s 22nd congressional district is certified, Representative Brindisi will be sworn in again to continue his bipartisan work on behalf of this district. As we’ve said from the start, once the election process is completed Anthony will be re-elected. Democracy might force us to wait sometimes, but voters’ faith in this process and our Republic should remain steadfast.” (WBNG) — According to numbers supplied to 12 News, Democrat Anthony Brindisi has a 13 vote lead in the race. He has 155,435 votes and Republican Claudia Tenney has 155,422 votes. UPDATE: UPDATE: “Governor Cuomo’s unfair, unwise, and unilateral rules changes and administrative burdens overwhelmed our voting system and created this utter dysfunction. As a result, the law was not followed when ballots were challenged and tabulated in this election. The result remains far from resolved. Hundreds of ineligible ballots were illegally or improperly cast including votes by the dead, non-residents, or unregistered voters. Those ballots should not – and must not – be counted. The hearing in court has already established that the current tally includes invalid votes and that the process to review and count the massive amount of paper ballots is fractured. Today’s misleading and inaccurate tally is rife with errors and mistakes that must be rectified before this election is certified. It is far from final. Our team will fight to ensure the rights of every voter who cast a legal and proper ballot are preserved and not diluted. We cannot sacrifice accuracy for speed. When that is done, we feel strongly that Claudia Tenney will be certified the winner of the race for the 22nd District of New York.” —- (WBNG) — A spokesperson for Claudia Tenney released the following statement to 12 News Wednesday evening. BINGHAMTON (WBNG) – The campaign office for Rep. Anthony Brindisi issued a statement Wednesday afternoon, claiming the incumbent democrat has now taken the lead in the race. —– Tenney was originally ahead in the vote count after Election Day by 28,000 votes. The lead has diminished as absentee ballots were counted. This is a developing story. Stay with 12 News for updates.last_img read more

Croatian roundup: ‘more professional’ UMFO, highways monetisation

first_imgCroatia’s Association of Pension Fund Management Companies and Pension Insurance Companies (UMFO) has re-launched on what it describes as a more professional footing, including permanent staffing.The association, a member of PensionsEurope, has hired Dijana Markoja, formerly of Erste Bank in Zagreb, as director.The current president is Dubravko Štimac, president of the management board of the PBZ Croatia Osiguranje Mandatory Pension Fund.At a press briefing, Markoja cited market research that showed a relatively high (41.7%) level of dissatisfaction with the current pension system. Attitudes towards the second pillar vary, with a significant 30.7% wanting the contribution rate (currently 5%) increased at the expense of the 15% first-pillar rate, while 17.3% want the reverse, and a further 6.8% would abolish the second pillar altogether.Those with higher education, professional jobs and high incomes are more favourably disposed to the second pillar than the less-well educated, elderly and low waged.Given that many workers do not consider retirement planning, the UMFO will shortly be launching a marketing awareness campaign.Its case for the second pillar will be boosted by good results – an average nominal 11.36% in 2014, and an average real return of 3.75% since the start of the system in 2002.In other news, Siniša Hajdaš Dončić, Croatia’s minister of Maritime Affairs, Transport and Infrastructure, has confirmed, in an interview with news daily Jutarnji list, an alternative plan should the Constitutional Court allow a referendum opposing the monetisation of the debts of Hrvatske Autoceste (HAC), the national motorway authority, and Autocesta Rijeka-Zagreb (ARZ), the state-owned company that operates the Rijeka-Zagreb motorway to go ahead, and the referendum succeeds.Under the ministry’s ‘Plan B’, the government would instead raise funds through an IPO of 51% of Croatian Motorways Maintenance and Tolling (HAC-ONC), the agency jointly owned by HAC and ARZ.Croatia’s four mandatory pension funds, which are among the consortium participants bidding for the monetisation concession, are expected to participate, alongside employees and other citizens.The minister said the IPO could raise €1.2bn, still well short of HAC and ARZ’s combined debts of €4.2bn.last_img read more

Photo credit: kirtok.comTwenty-two year old Garvin George of Calibishie will on Friday know what sentence he will have to serve after a jury found him guilty of murder last year.On the 23rd of November, 2011 a nine member jury found George guilty of the murder of Julien Junior Joseph on the 5th of February, 2010 at Calibishie.At the conclusion of his trial in November Justice Bernie Stevenson-Brooks deferred her sentence and ordered that a Social Welfare report be conducted in which both families of the accused and deceased including the accused would be interviewed.That report she noted would assist her in determining an appropriate sentence therefore the matter was traversed to the January 2012 Criminal Assizes for sentencing.On Monday 13th February, 2012 when George appeared before Justice Bernie Stevenson-Brooks his attorney Wayne Norde informed the Court that two witnesses would testify for the Defence.During the trial in November the Defence did not present any witnesses nor did the Defendant testify.He gave an unsworn statement expressing deep remorse stating that “I did not have any intention to cause harm to the guy”.The Defendant’s mother Sylvia George who has 11 other children told the Court that her son “was very nice to people, always willing to help me as I have a lot of children and he wasn’t disobedient”.She also said that his father left him at the age of 3 and she has played the role of both mother and father since.She further testified that her son’s grandmother is “crying because he was her company” and his brothers and sisters “are still mourning about their brother”.The other witness George Augustus of Pointe Baptiste, Calibishie said he knew the Defendant as a little boy growing up in the village and described him as “his mother’s right hand”.He said George who worked with him on construction projects from time to time was never disrespectful to him, always willing to help and always making people laugh.“I know him as his mother’s right hand; he helped her a lot because she has lots of children. In as much as his mother had a lot of children the first person he would remember is her to help his brothers and sisters to go to school. He also used to sleep with his granny she is missing him all now.”Augustus also explained that the Defendant was taken advantage of when he was struck by a bus at the age of 19 and “the driver never stopped to take care of him, he struggled a lot to get better”.After hearing both witnesses Justice Stevenson-Brooks told the Defendant that she had to think about the evidence she had heard and would tell him on Friday what sentence he would receive.

first_img Published on May 13, 2012 at 12:00 pm Contact Nick: | @nicktoneytweets Comments Syracuse will continue postseason play in the Tempe region of the NCAA tournament after earning an at-large bid on Sunday night.Despite being upset by St. John’s in the first round of the Big East tournament, the Orange’s 40 wins during the regular season were enough for the team to reach the tournament for the third straight season.In the first round of the double-elimination round robin tournament, SU (40-14) will play Long Beach State (28-23) on Friday in Tempe, Ariz., at 6:30 p.m. The region also includes the host and No. 3 seed Arizona State (46-7), the defending national champions, and LIU Brooklyn (25-33), who will square off in the second game Friday.The Orange enters the tournament with an at-large bid for the first time in program history. SU won its first-ever NCAA tournament game last season against Louisiana State, but failed to advance past the regional round.Long Beach State, Big West conference champions, comes into the tournament having won 15 of its last 18 games.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textBut moving into the next round in Arizona State’s region will be a tough task for SU.The Sun Devils finished second in the Pac-12 to No. 1 seed California and are among the top teams in the nation. The Orange struggled against Pac-12 competition early in the season, losing to California and Arizona at the Kajikawa Classic and falling to UCLA and Arizona a second time at the Cathedral Classic.SU was outscored by 21 runs over those four games. And after the Kajikawa classic coach Leigh Ross said she learned a lot about her team, especially after SU lost by only three runs to California.Syracuse will have to be better than Arizona State and the two other teams in Tempe if it hopes to advance to its first College World Series.nctoney@syr.educenter_img Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more

USC off and running in first scrimmage

first_imgUSC invited the 243rd Battalion, known as the “Trojan Battery,” to speak to the team before practice.The seven-man unit, headed to the Persian Gulf in a couple weeks, and delivered an inspirational speech to the team and presented Kiffin a Battalion coin. For the first time this spring, USC practiced its two-minute drill. Sophomore wide receiver Robert Woods was the target for the first play of all three attempts in the two-minute offense, and he scored both touchdowns.The offense moved the ball with ease in the hurry-up, the highlight coming when Barkley dropped back, and noticing no one in front of him, tucked it 25 yards for a first down.The offense faced just one third down, while picking up four first downs.“Matt did really well,” Kiffin said. “[I] thought he commanded the huddle great.”The offense went four-and-out in the second two-minute drill, but bounced right back in the third.The first play was a pass to Woods who would be Barkley’s intended target on five more plays.Woods snagged a skinny post for 14 yards on a third and 15 that allowed the offense to convert the ensuing fourth and one.The drive was capped by an 11-yard touchdown grab on third and 10.“We moved the ball well on offense,” Barkley said. “Our [offensive] line played a lot better than they have in the past, especially in terms of protection.” — The seats might have been nearly empty, but the USC football team didn’t seem to notice.On Saturday, the team had one of its liveliest practices of the spring at the Coliseum. Beside the empty seats, it looked a lot like an actual game.“It was very spirited and competitive,” said USC coach Lane Kiffin.Go-to guy · Sophomore wide receiver Robert Woods scored two touchdowns while the Trojans’ offense practiced its two-minute drill. – Christopher Pham | Daily Trojan When the offense went for an early fourth and goal, the defensive sideline hollered in an attempt to distract the offense. They couldn’t stop senior running back Marc Tyler from smashing it up the gut and in, however.It was Tyler’s first practice participating in full-contact drills.He went through no-contact drills in his return Tuesday and soft-contact drills Thursday. He said his hamstring felt good in the beginning of practice, but then it got tight and cramped up a bit.Sophomore running back Dillon Baxter, who impressed in Tyler’s absence, exited midway through the scrimmage with a high ankle sprain.Kiffin said after practice it was too early to speculate as to the extent of the injury, but he thought Baxter could still return this spring.The injury was the result of an extremely hard-hitting scrimmage.It started off with goal-to-go situations, where the injury-depleted offensive line dominated.This was a dramatic change of pace from other practices, in which the defensive line has been overpowering. — — Sophomore cornerback Anthony Brown sacked Barkley on one of the scrimmage’s first plays and walk-on senior cornerback Boomer Roepke followed suit midway through the scrimmage.Junior safety Jawanza Starling had the day’s only interception, which came off freshman quarterback Cody Kessler in a seven-on-seven drill.When defending a third and 20 early in the scrimmage, USC secondary coach Willie Mack Garza called out his unit, asking them if they remembered the Washington game last season.The Huskies converted a fourth and 10 for 18 yards against the Trojan defense, which set up a game-winning field goal.last_img read more
