Come November, Jack Moore could have more on his plate than the family business.
The owner of Gro-Moore Farms and a former six-year member of the Henrietta town board, Moore won Tuesday night's Republican primary with 1,290 votes, a 31 percent lead over fellow Republican and incumbent supervisor Michael Yudelson, who received 673 votes.
"In Henrietta, we don't really have an active Democratic party so the people really don't have a choice and I've given them a choice," Moore said.
Moore has criticized some of Yudelson's budgetary decisions and plans to make changes if elected.
"I would hire a finance director; we have been without a finance director for three years. It has hurt the town immensely," Moore said.
Yudelson says he was surprised by Moore's candidacy but wants residents to focus on the town's successes over the past few years.
"We talked about the tax rates saying the same for several years but also maintaining the same high level of services, we talked about open government and accessibility, that it was a campaign we are trying to run with integrity," Yudelson said.
Tuesday's primary was vital for Moore. Yudelson is also on the Conservative and Independent ticket so he will run in November's general election despite losing in the primary.
Moore's decision to run for supervisor came shortly after he resigned from the town board. He says if he doesn't win the election he will not run for office again.
Yudelson says despite Tuesday's results, he is confident being on both the Conservative and Independent line come November will put him on top.
"If they want me I'm for hire, if they don't, I got plenty of work at home," Yudelson said.
"We'd go on to November, he'd be on one line, I'd be on two lines. Now instead of having roughly 7,200 people eligible to vote, we have over 22,000, so we both make our case to those people," Moore said.
