The Knox Democratic caucus was tense as those nominated mostly by members of the party’s committee were pitted against a slate of nominees already on the Republican ballot. Republicans had earlier nominated a slate of candidates enrolled in various parties.

Both Republicans and Democrats nominated a full slate of candidates, including for town supervisor, highway superintendent, and two seats on the town board.

Kimberly Lovell and Nathan Elble are incumbents. Helen Lounsbury, Martin Szinger, and Randy Bashwinger are challengers. Candidates were asked about the school budget, the capital project, and other issues facing the district in the coming school year.

A long-time board member, C. James Coffin, and a newcomer, Robert Samson, are guaranteed seats on the Voorheesville School Board as no one else is in the running.

GUILDERLAND — The Guilderland Democratic Committee is gearing up for the November elections and will be interviewing candidates who submit their names to a screening committee by May 1.

John Wemple, who chairs the screening committee, says he anticipates incumbents will be running.

Offices up for election include:

Two female farmers are squaring off in the town’s only election. Laura Ten Eyck and Ally Moreau are both making their first run for elected office.

A co-owner of Indian Ladder Farms, she says she wants the town to both protect and take advantage of its land and natural resources.

New Scotland town board candidate, Ally Moreau

At age 20 and running to be the only Republican on the New Scotland Town Board, Ally Moreau says her youth and outsider status will serve as an advantage.

The town board seat soon to be left vacant by Eric Kuck will be contested in the general election by Dan Hanley and Ken Saddlemire.

GUILDERLAND — Incumbents Barbara Fraterrigo and Gloria Towle-Hilt are running again for the Guilderland School Board. They are joined by newcomer Teresa Gitto.
