Both incumbents and two challengers survive primary day in the race for Watertown City Council with the focus now turning to campaigning for the general election in November. In unofficial results from Tuesday's vote, Councilwoman Terresa Macaluso garnered the most votes: 574. Councilman Jeff Smith earned 454 votes, just two votes ahead of third place challenger Steve Jennings. Rounding out the top four is Cody Horbacz, with 342 votes. Fellow challengers Rod LaFave garnered 262 votes for fifth place with Jasmine Borreggine with 246 votes for sixth place.
Macaluso, Smith, Jennings, and Horbacz will now move on to the November ballot. The top two vote getters there will win a council seat. Just over 1200 ballots were cast in Tuesday's primary, roughly 10% of the registered vote. Can we gauge the November vote from yesterday? Mixed results according to past primaries. In the 2003 primary, Tim LaBouf garnered the most votes and did win a seat in the November election. In 2005, James O'Brien garnered the most votes during the primary, but failed to win a council seat in the November election.
