County legislator's ticket postponed

FORT ANN — The trespassing cases of Albany County Legislator Deborah Busch and her boyfriend, Rory Russell, were adjourned on Wednesday until Aug. 13, according to Fort Ann Court Clerk Barbara Burch.

The two were ticketed in July when Russell’s neighbors say they spotted them on their property in the hamlet of Kattskill Bay and called police.

Busch said they were on a path between the small, lakefront properties commonly used by neighbors. She suspected the complaint stemmed from disputes Russell has had with the same neighbors over proposed modifications to his dock, including a boat lift and a sundeck, before the Lake George Park Commission.

A nurse manager from Knox, Busch represents Rensselaerville, Westerlo, and parts of Knox and Berne.
