ALBANY COUNTY — Republican Travis Stevens, seeking his second term representing the 31st District in Albany County, says he listens, and he can work across party lines to get things done for his community.

ALBANY COUNTY — Democrat Nicholas Viscio, a 22-year member of the Knox Town Board, is making his first run for a county post.

ALBANY COUNTY — Daniel Plaat is running for county executive on the Green Party line not because he thinks he can win but because he wants to make a difference.

ALBANY COUNTY — On Monday, Republican Francis J. Vitollo — “Call me Joe” — was out posting election signs and going door to door to convince people to vote for him as Albany County’s next executive.

“People think their vote doesn’t count, but they’re wrong,” he said. “This race will be close if we get people out to vote.”

ALBANY COUNTY — Albany County Executive Daniel McCoy beat his challenger in September’s Democratic primary with 60 percent of the vote. In the weeks before the Nov. 3 general election, he is urging county residents to vote, just vote — no matter for whom.

On Nov. 3, Knox voters will decide between a longtime incumbent supervisor, Michael Hammond, and his pro-growth challenger, Vasilios Lefkaditis.

For 38 years, the school board has recognized its best employees, nominated by peers and selected by committee. More than 400 have been honored over the years. Five more joined the ranks last Tuesday in a televised ceremony.

Fueled by a bond defeat that would have upgraded town buildings, Republicans in this rural Hilltown, dominated by Democrats for decades, have put up a slate of candidates for the Nov. 3 election.

Excess space can be a matter of definition, the school board learned on Tuesday night.

The inaugural class will be inductedinto the new Berne-Knox-Westerlo Sports Hall of Fame on Oct. 9; the community is invited.
