ROME, N.Y. – Rome Mayor Jackie Izzo is projected to remain in office, receiving 67% of votes over Democratic candidate David Halpin with all precincts reporting Tuesday night.

“We did a lot of work in the first term and that’s going to carry over to the second term and we’ve got Rome on the move – we want to make Rome great again,” said Izzo.

With new businesses coming to the area, Izzo says workforce development will be a priority for her, as well as developing housing for local workers.
