WASHINGTON - A write-in candidate defeated a 12-year incumbent in the race for second supervisor in the Town of Washington on Tuesday. Cal Wasserstrass was defeated 74-59 by write-in candidate Chad Cassidy after serving for 12 years as second supervisor on the Washington board. "I was surprised," said town chairman Richard Rufer, who won re-election Tuesday with 134 votes against five write-in votes.
