The Enterprise — Elizabeth Floyd Mair
Councilwoman Laurel Bohl, right, looks at a document with town Justice Denise Randall before the town’s reorganizational meeting on Jan. 7. Bohl asked Randall, Guilderland’s first female judge, to perform her swearing-in, she told The Enterprise, to mark the fact that Bohl’s entry makes the board majority-female. It is the first time that the town board has had more women than men, according to former town historian Alice Begley. Bohl joins board members Rosemary Centi, Patricia Slavick, Paul Pastore, and Supervisor Peter Barber. The board also became all-Democratic when Centi and Bohl got the most votes in a three-way race for two seats in November, ousting Republican Lee Carman.
