Denise Randall, the Democratic incumbent up for re-election, said Stephen DeNigris’s assertions “betray a lack of understanding of what the job entails.”
Randall owns her own law practice in Guilderland, and said she has reduced her hours there in order to fulfill her obligations to the town court.

Stephen DeNigris, a Democrat running on the Republican ticket, said he doesn’t believe that the court crowding can be solely attributed to the fact that there are currently only two town justices.
“To simply believe just hiring a third judge will solve the problem is unacceptable,” he said.

In the past, just one slot for town judge has been open, but this year two are up for election. The third post is already filled by Democrat John Bailey, whose term runs for another two years.

Some readers are going to smile when they hear what I am about to say. Not because it is humorous, but because either they have been in the same situation or they know someone else who has been there. The thought never really entered my mind until a recent visit to see my sister in North Carolina.

GUILDERLAND — Open town positions for 2014 include the supervisor and two town board seats. Democratic incumbents will face Republican opponents for each of these posts.

GUILDERLAND — Supervisor Kenneth Runion is running for his eighth two-year term, and is facing opponent Mark Grimm, who initially announced he would run against Runion for the supervisor position for the term beginning in 2012, but then withdrew, saying he believed a Runion-versus-Grimm race would fracture the town.

GUILDERLAND — Mark Grimm, a media strategist and adjunct college instructor, was a member of the town board for one term, from 2008 to 2012, during which time he and his fellow Republican board member, Warren Redlich, were often at odds with the Democrats.

GUILDERLAND — Mark Livingston, a political newcomer, has lived in Guilderland for more than 50 years. He attended Guilderland High School, as did his two children, and two stepchildren.

GUILDERLAND — Patricia Slavick, who works for the state, in finances, is running for her fourth four-year term on the town board.
