NEW SCOTLAND — The town Republican Party, which put up no candidates in the last election cycle, announced last week a recovered slate of candidates seeking office this November at both the town and the county levels. But the party has no candidate for town supervisor.

Republican Party Chairman Tim Stanton will face Democratic incumbent L. Michael Mackey in District 38, and Andrew Holland will take on the Democratic Primary winner of the race between incumbent Herbert Reilly and his challenger, William Reinhardt, in District 33.

Families and friends jammed into Voorheesville's performing arts center to celebrate the district's graduates.

“I’m interested in video-editing, and 3-D modeling and animation,” Valedictorian Erik Patak said. “I was learning off YouTube, one of the best educational resources.”

John Bennett Mackay learned last month that he had edged out his friends for the honor at a school he enjoyed attending.
