SYRACUSE, N.Y. -- History was made Tuesday in Syracuse during the race for Common Councilor at Large.
Earlier this year, the local Democratic committee made waves when it decided not to endorse Democratic Council Majority Leader Lance Denno, and Democratic Councilor at Large Jean Kessner.
Denno's run for reelection came to a stop after losing in the primary election. However, Kessner won her reelection.
Voters also elected former Common Councilor Pamela Hunter. Now, all four Council at Large seats will be held by women for the first time in the city's history.
According to Kessner, it's an exciting time. She hopes to make some changes to bring an end to some of the fighting that has been an inssue during her current team.
"There are ways to compromise, that's more my personality and I'm going to let that shine a little more this time. Let's try to work this out and get together on issues," said Kessner.
Along with Hunter, the only other new councilor voted in was Chad Ryan. He is the son of longtime Onondaga County Legislator Ed Ryan.
