Town Supervisor Luke Smith vocally defended Niskayuna against the suit when it initially became public, while other elected officials on the Democrat-controlled town board have declined to comment on it.
Contacted Tuesday, Scott Stevens, a Republican seeking a seat on the town board this fall said, "I'm not privy to all of the details of the case. It comes down to standard operating procedures and what was the process used in making decisions about these promotions. These are all good people; they are all good cops, and I have faith that the court will make the right decision in this matter." ""
