Town Supervisor Peter Barber will be challenged this fall by Republican Brian Forte, whom he beat narrowly in 2015.

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

Supervisor Peter Barber and most of the other incumbents up for re-election to town posts in Guilderland are running again. Republicans have not yet decided who will challenge them.

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:

GUILDERLAND — Long-time Democratic Committee Chairman David Bosworth changed the shape of politics in Guilderland, turning Democratic a town that had been controlled by the Republican Party and its forerunner for 150 years.

GUILDERLAND — The town Democratic party chairman was reappointed in January by a Democrat-dominated town board to a post for which he was a no-show last year.

Enrolled Democrats outnumber enrolled Republicans in the Hilltowns by a lot.

KNOX — For the second consecutive race, Democratic Supervisor Michael Hammond is being opposed by a resident saying he has been in the post too long.
