GUILDERLAND — Just 21 votes separated Bryan Clenahan and Christine Napierski July 26 at the Guilderland Democratic caucus, which was conducted using paper ballots rather than a voice vote or a show of hands because so many voters — 285 — turned up at Tawasentha Park.

“What irritates me most about this case,” said town Supervisor Peter Barber in federal court, acting as attorney for one of the defendants, "is we are less than 72 hours before the start of this caucus.” He called the lawsuit “borderline frivolous.”

GUILDERLAND — Christine Napierski was chosen in April over 13 other candidates to replace town justice Richard Sherwood who pleaded guilty this week to felony charges.
