KNOX — For the second consecutive race, Democratic Supervisor Michael Hammond is being opposed by a resident saying he has been in the post too long.

Jean Cataldo, the town clerk, who is also a Democrat, said there is a minimum requirement of 10 posted notifications for a caucus.

Rosemary Centi has worked as Guilderland's town clerk and David Cardona has been a village trustee and a chief court clerk.

GUILDERLAND — After long-time Supervisor Kenneth Runion announced last month that he would not be seeking re-election in the fall, notable town Democrats scrambled for the party’s nod.

With a new chair on the Albany County Democratic Committee and rumblings over progressive factions being earlier shut out, Knox's town clerk stands out on the executive committee.

To change or not to change was the question in Knox elections this year. The answer: All incumbents kept their posts.

A large number of "under votes" were cast for council seats, where ballots had fewer or none of the allowed votes for the race.

In three instances, candidates didn’t file their paperwork on time and failed to secure endorsements before the Sept. 10 primaries.
