HILLTOWNS — Three candidates of various backgrounds and party affiliations are running for a seat in the New York State Assembly in a special election held on April 24.

The candidates are:

The Berne Town Board tabled appointing new members to the town’s youth council and board of assessment review; discussions through email reveal Democratic board members’ concerns over appointing the GOP party chairman to the youth council.

A Berne GOP candidate has filed suit against the Albany County Board of Elections and his opponents in order to prevent two absentee ballots from being opened due to a former ruling specific to the county. These ballots could change the majority on the town board town board.

Congressman Paul Tonko

A letter to the editor makes the specious claim that Congressman Paul Tonko was in the pocket of the nation’s beet and cane sugar cartels. The Enterprise found a lot more that was not said in the letter.

KNOX — Although Democrats outnumber Republicans in Knox by nearly 2 to 1, the Republican-nominated candidates took all of the seats up for election.

On Nov. 7, New York voters will have a once-in-a-generation decision to make: Should there be a constitutional convention to revise or amend the state’s government document?

Razor-thin margins in the New Scotland Conservative primary has the race too close to call.

GUILDERLAND — The Republican challengers for town board did solidly in the Conservative and Independence party primaries in Guilderland Tuesday, but were bested by the Democratic incumbents.

The New Scotland Republican Party will field only one challenger for town offices this fall. One Republican Committee member lays some partial blame on national politics.

In the Sept. 12 Democratic primary, Victoria Plotsky, a lawyer running on reform, is challenging Darrell Duncan, the former county commissioner of public works, to represent parts of New Scotland and Bethlehem in the Albany County Legislature. Duncan was appointed in January to fill a vacancy.
