Timothy Horan, election night

GUILDERLAND — Timothy Horan, a 30-year career teacher set to retire at the end of the school year, won over 25 percent of the vote, making him the clear frontrunner in a five-way race for three school board seats.

“Real good night,” said Horan after the tally was announced Tuesday night.

Amy Pokorny, Vasilios Lefkaditis

Although elections are half-a-year away, two candidates have announced they are running for Knox town supervisor: Vasilios Lefkaditis, the current supervisor, and Amy Pokorny, a town councilwoman.

A week before the Guilderland school board election, one candidate faces a lawsuit.

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.

Petitions are due on April 17 for candidates seeking seats on Voorheesville school and library boards. Two incumbents have announced they are running — C. James Coffin for the school board and Janna Shillinglaw for the library board.

Few voters cast ballots in uncontested elections in Voorheesville and Altamont.

BERNE — There are three seats up for election on the Berne-Knox-Westerlo School Board, and so far, at least three candidates — two incumbents and a former long-time board member — have confirmed that they are running.

In Altamont, Kerry Dineen, submitted the sole petition for mayor. She will be the village’s first female mayor and will serve for four years.

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