KNOX — Two candidates are vying for a judgeship in Knox as James Corigliano is not seeking a third term.

KNOX — Traci Schanz says she loves her job as the Knox town clerk, a post she was elected to two years ago when the Republicans made a sweep of all town offices.

Schanz is enrolled in the Independence Party and is also running on the Republican and Conservative lines.

Joan Adriance

KNOX — Joan Adriance feels qualified to be town clerk both because of her professional background and because of her far-ranging community service.
She has a bachelor’s degree in business administration and a master’s degree in secondary education.

The proposed highway department budget for next year proposes $2,000 less in overtime than this year, because of retirements, Wier said.

Starting on Saturday, Oct. 26, Albany County voters will for the first time be able to vote before the general election, which this year is on Tuesday, Nov. 5.
