POTSDAM — Democratic primary winner Toni Kennedy says her “work does not stop here” after her victory Thursday.

Kennedy won the Democratic primary for a one-year unexpired term for a town council seat. She received 322 votes, compared to 153 for James Grant Jr. The seat became open following the death of Rollin Beattie, town supervisor, who died earlier this year.

The results are unofficial and do not include absentee ballots.

“First of all, thank you to Councilman Jim Grant for running a clean and competitive race,” Kennedy said. “I am extremely humbled to become the Democratic nominee for the Potsdam Town Council. I will continue to knock on doors so I can have those important one-on-one conversations with my fellow neighbors, Democrats and Republicans alike, straight into November."
