Deputy Supervisor Jason Rauf, who The Enterprise covered in a separate profile, is running for highway superintendent, uncontested.

The Facebook page of the Town of New Scotland Republican Committee shared a post on Jan. 6 from Republican Congressional candidate Liz Joy that called the Jan. 6 riot at the Capitol “very peaceful & kind.” Joy wrote that “Everyone there was law abiding,” and sought to blame the day’s violence on left-wing activists. 

Democrat Lisa Williams, appointed clerk in December 2020, is squaring off against Republican Lori Dollard for the office’s full two-year term.

The process to replace two county planning board members had been shrouded in mystery. Albany County Legislator Mark Grimm shed a beam of light on the dark procedure.

Republican endorsee Kregg Grippo is running for Knox supervisor against former assessor Russ Pokorny, a Democrat who has run for supervisor before but lost. Resident Brigitte McAuliffe is shooting for a spot on the town board on her own Accountability line, running against Republican-backed incumbents Karl Pritchard and Ken Saddlemire.

Incumbent Democrats are facing Republican opposition for supervisor, two seats on the town board, and town clerk — but New Scotland’s Democratic town judge and highway superintendent won’t face GOP opposition in November. 

ALBANY COUNTY — Two members of the county’s planning board were slated for replacement without their knowledge.

Peter Barber

Five political newcomers are actively vying for two seats on the Guilderland Town Board. At the same time, the incumbent supervisor, Democrat Peter Barber, is unchallenged as he seeks a fourth two-year term.
