RENSSELAERVILLE — This is the third election for Donna Kropp, currently the chair of the town’s assessors. First elected in 2005, the Republican says she wants to continue to use the investment she has made in training.

RENSSELAERVILLE — Despite losing a Democratic nomination and a faulty petition to get on the ballot, Heather Kelly, the town’s deputy clerk for two years, is running as a write-in candidate for her mentor’s position as town clerk. Democrat Kathleen Hallenbeck is retiring after decades in the post.

RENSSELAERVILLE — Victoria Kraker, the town’s current court clerk, is seeking to hold the position she has observed for some time — the town clerk and tax collector. She says a town clerk is required to have many of the skills that an office clerk at Bryant’s grocery store in Greenville would.

RENSSELAERVILLE — With three decades of corporate experience behind her, Independence Party member Kathryn Wank says she wants to do the job of assessor fairly and by the book.

BERNE — The two repeat candidates to lead Berne — Republican William Keal and Democrat Kevin Crosier — have differences on whether the town should allow fracking and on how business should be encouraged, but they agree the town should have no problem meeting the state-set tax cap.

BERNE — Joseph Golden, 71, said he is running for continuity on the board, “to finish up and keep moving things forward,” he said. “It’s kind of an enjoyable job.” Golden spent four years in the United States Marines Corps and is a retired teacher of economics and government at Schoharie Central.

BERNE — Having spent nearly his entire life in Berne, Philip Stevens says the town hasn’t been tough enough on its untidy properties.

BERNE — Two years after he began as an alternate member of the Berne Zoning Board, Richard Otto has identified what he sees as overly restrictive regulations for the town’s land. It wasn’t until the outpouring of people against the state’s gun-control legislation that Otto was encouraged to run for a board seat for the first time.

BERNE — Wayne Emory grew up in rural Fort Plain and wanted to live in the similar environment of Berne, holding a job for more than 30 years as a graphic artist with the state lottery.

BERNE — With her children grown up, Melanie Bunzey wants a new way to connect with people in the town. The Democrat is running for a four-year assessor position.
