SYRACUSE, New York — Syracuse Mayor Stephanie Miner has won a second term in a year she gained statewide attention for criticism aimed at fellow Democrat Gov. Andrew Cuomo.
With all precincts reporting, unofficial results put Miner with nearly 69 percent of the vote Tuesday.
Miner, an outspoken former labor lawyer, faced no Republican opponent in this Democrat-heavy city. She won a three-way Democratic primary in September.
Miner became a spokeswoman for the financial pressures facing cities after calling Cuomo's proposals to help localities insufficient and described his proposal to tame pension costs as an "accounting gimmick."
Miner's comments appeared to have chilled her relationship with the governor, who declined to endorse his state party co-chairwoman when she faced primary challengers.
Also on the ballot are Conservative Ian Hunter and Kevin Bott of the Green Party.
