Penny Barone

By Saranac Hale Spencer

NEW SCOTLAND — Republican Penny Barone is making a second run for the clerk’s office.

She ran for the first time two years ago, saying, “It’s basically time for a change,” since nobody had challenged the incumbent for several years.  Barone could not be reached for comment this week.

During her first run, Barone told the Enterprise, that, being a mother of four who works full time, “I would love to have Town Hall open one evening per week.”  Keeping evening hours, from 7 to 9 p.m., one day a week would offer working parents a chance to get the licenses and things they need from town hall without having to take time off from work to do so.

“The town clerk is really the direct link between all residents and the local government,” she said two years ago.

New ideas and new faces, she said then, are “uplifting for the whole community.”
