GUILDERLAND — Long-time Democratic Committee Chairman David Bosworth changed the shape of politics in Guilderland, turning Democratic a town that had been controlled by the Republican Party and its forerunner for 150 years.

In Altamont, Kerry Dineen, submitted the sole petition for mayor. She will be the village’s first female mayor and will serve for four years.

GUILDERLAND — The town Democratic party chairman was reappointed in January by a Democrat-dominated town board to a post for which he was a no-show last year.

People’s Action is pushing for weekly Tuesday protests across the country fighting Donald Trump’s initiatives.

Enrolled Democrats outnumber enrolled Republicans in the Hilltowns by a lot.

A majority of absentee ballots added to the Democratic candidate’s column opposing Ken Saddlemire for a seat on the Knox council.

With just over a thousand votes, Laura Ten Eyck kept her seat on the New Scotland Town Board, defeating her fellow female farmer, Ally Moreau.

Republican Peter Lopez is running unopposed to represent the 102nd Assembly District, which includes the Helderberg Hilltowns of Rensselaerville and Westerlo. The other two Hilltowns, Berne and Knox, are in the 111th District where Democratic incumbent Angelo Santabarbara is again being challenged by Republican Peter Vroman.
