GERMAN FLATTS – With all of the votes counted in the town of German Flatts, political newcomer Peter Rovazzi has ousted incumbent Frank Spatto for the position of town supervisor.


Rovazzi – who won the Republican primary election in September – received 1,528 votes, while Spatto – who ran on the Conservative Party line – received 1,109 votes.

The race for German Flatts town supervisor was a controversial one, with the shutdown of the Creekside Mobile Home Park at the center of it. Spatto led the push to shut down the mobile home park over the last four years because several of the homes were located in a flood plain, and Rovazzi is the son of the owners of the mobile home park.

The town of German Flatts encompasses the villages of Mohawk and Ilion, as well as some areas outside the villages.

Spatto has served in the position of German Flatts town supervisor for 21 years. This will be Rovazzi’s first time serving in a public office.
