highway superintendent

Kenneth Weaver won on the Democratic line in the past, but switched to the GOP line this time having declined other endorsements.

BERNE —  Democrat Scott Duncan, coming from the larger-scale Albany County Department of Public Works, wants to work closer to home, closer to Berne residents, at the helm of the town highway department.

BERNE — Berne was a summer home before it was permanent for Kenneth Weaver, a town employee for over three decades and its current highway superintendent. Weaver, a Democrat, has enrolled as a Republican and won Republican backing in the upcoming race for another four years.

WESTERLO — Keith Wright likes being Westerlo’s highway superintendent.

“It’s not the same every day,” he said. “There’s always something different.”

Wright, who is 58, will have worked for the highway department for 20 years in June; he was foreman for six years and was appointed to the top spot 10 months ago.

Berne Highway Superintendent Kenneth Weaver and his opponent, Democrat Scott Duncan, both say shared services with the Albany County Department of Public Works wouldn't work.
