Picente was joined by supporters at Daniele’s At Valley View in Utica Tuesday night.

This will be Picente’s fourth term as Oneida County executive, and says his top three priorities moving forward will be maintaining financial strength in the county, working on economic development projects and addressing public safety issues.

Picente has been a vocal supporter of both the downtown Utica hospital project, and the new Cree manufacturing facility coming to Marcy.

Michael Hennessy was the Democratic challenger in this race.
