UTICA, N.Y. -- A winner of the Utica mayoral primary has been announced more than a week after the election.
Oneida County election commissioners confirm that incumbent mayor, Robert Palmieri, has retained his lead over councilman Joe Marino, winning that Democratic line for the general election in November.
Officials with the Oneida County Board of Elections expect to have official numbers Friday.
The mayor doesn't want to comment until then.
Matt Arcuri is on the Republican line.
