June 22 was primary day in New York, though there were few contested elections. The most important contest of the night was in Cairo, where longtime Greene County Legislator William Lawrence was retiring. Three Republicans faced off to replace him with Michael J. Camadine, backed by the Cairo establishment Republicans, winning with 183 votes, or 42.46 percent. Sherry B. True finished second with 155 votes, or 35.96 percent. Current Cairo Town Supervisor John M. Coyne was third with 85 votes, or 19.72 percent. There were also eight write-in votes.
