Schultz defeats Moore for Henrietta town supervisor

HENRIETTA, N.Y. (WROC-TV) - A new candidate will take over as Henrietta town supervisor. 

Democrat Steven Schultz won the ticket with 58 percent of the votes. 

Republican incumbent Jack Moore has come under fire for alleged racist, sexist, and homophobic remarks to employees. Moore has denied the allegations.

"I inherited a workforce that wasn't functional and I made it functional and basically a day's pay for a day's work," Moore said after learning of his defeat. "I had three or four disgruntled employees for a long time that hadn't worked and they had to work."

Schultz was feeling overwhelmed after his victory Tuesday night.

"It's kind of surreal," Schultz said. "I've never run for office before but I've had a lot of great support from teams, including some established politicians that just... it's kind of a little overwhelming."
