Robert Johnson, an attorney and former zoning board chairman, was appointed as the New Scotland Town justice last Wednesday.
The position was decided several months ago when Bates, a Democrat and deputy sheriff, was endorsed by all four parties. Sitting Judge Timothy Miller, a Democrat, didn’t run for another term.
Ronald "Joey" Bates says he will retire from the Albany County Sheriff's Office if he wins election in November.
BERNE — Early in his career as a town justice, Democrat Albert Raymond was encouraged to take more than the 12 hours of required courses each year of his first term.
