Reader way ahead in early vote counts for prosecutor

It’s early, but in what is Livingston County’s hottest primary race, former Livingston County Circuit Court Judge David Reader is off to a roaring start in his quest to unseat Livingston County Prosecutor William Vailliencourt.

At about 9:15 p.m., Reader had a huge lead, with nearly 71 percent of the 15,055 votes cast.

Reader had out-raised Vailliencourt, reporting a total of $105,371 raised, including $65,000 of his own money. Vailliencourt raised just $20,430.

The winner takes on Democrat Ragan Lake in the fall.
