elections 2019

Hébert Joseph, the new chairman of the town’s Democratic Party, said that he hopes to get more Democrats voting this year, such as by helping transport the elderly to the polls and encouraging young people to vote.

Patricia Snyder

Two-term New Scotland Councilwoman Patricia Snyder will not run for a third term in the fall. With incumbent William Hennessy up for re-election, two seats on the town board are open.

In Voorheesville, incumbents fell and budgets were easily approved on Tuesday, May 21.

GUILDERLAND — All five of the items on Guilderland’s ballots sailed through on Tuesday, most with a 2-to-1 approval ratio. The school and library budgets, the school and library capital projects, and the bus proposition all passed.

An anonymous flyer was distributed in the days before the October 2018 vote on a proposed school capital project, and the project was defeated by 58 votes. Now a very similar flyer is urging voters to defeat the school and library propositions on Tuesday, May 21.

The Berne-Knox-Westerlo superintendent says that he has every right to post campaign signs in front of his home, supporting the current school board president, Matthew Tedeschi, and his running mate, Rebecca Miller, for the district’s board of education.

The Voorheesville Teachers’ Association, looking for a better way to communicate with the school board, has backed a candidate that it feels will help it in that pursuit.

On May 21, two Voorheesville residents will vie for one seat on the library’s board of trustees, as incumbent Lance Moore is challenged by Belinda Heckler.

The newcomer running for the board for the first time is a lieutenant colonel in the Air National Guard.

In Voorheesville, tax increases and a three-way race for one school-board seat are on the ballot come May 21.
