Incumbents for town judge, highway superintendent, and tax collector are running unopposed.

KNOX — Seeking a third four-year term, Judge Jean Gagnon, a Democrat, wanted to be more involved in the community when she first sought her post, one of two town justices. She is running unopposed on Conservative, Democratic, and Independence Party lines.

RENSSELAERVILLE — Assessor Michael Weber is running for a second term for the job that he says matches his temperament.

RENSSELAERVILLE — Two years after losing in the election for assessor, Jeffry Pine is running again, claiming properties affected by Tropical Storm Irene haven’t been properly assessed.

RENSSELAERVILLE — This is the third election for Donna Kropp, currently the chair of the town’s assessors. First elected in 2005, the Republican says she wants to continue to use the investment she has made in training.

RENSSELAERVILLE — Despite losing a Democratic nomination and a faulty petition to get on the ballot, Heather Kelly, the town’s deputy clerk for two years, is running as a write-in candidate for her mentor’s position as town clerk. Democrat Kathleen Hallenbeck is retiring after decades in the post.

RENSSELAERVILLE — Victoria Kraker, the town’s current court clerk, is seeking to hold the position she has observed for some time — the town clerk and tax collector. She says a town clerk is required to have many of the skills that an office clerk at Bryant’s grocery store in Greenville would.

RENSSELAERVILLE — With three decades of corporate experience behind her, Independence Party member Kathryn Wank says she wants to do the job of assessor fairly and by the book.

BERNE — The two repeat candidates to lead Berne — Republican William Keal and Democrat Kevin Crosier — have differences on whether the town should allow fracking and on how business should be encouraged, but they agree the town should have no problem meeting the state-set tax cap.

BERNE — Joseph Golden, 71, said he is running for continuity on the board, “to finish up and keep moving things forward,” he said. “It’s kind of an enjoyable job.” Golden spent four years in the United States Marines Corps and is a retired teacher of economics and government at Schoharie Central.
