Albany County GOP Chairman Peter Kermani, announced today (July 23) that he will not be running for re-election this November.
The announcement was made as the Executive Committee of the Albany County Republican Committee met this morning. Kermani has been in office as chairman since 1999, when he replaced Fred Field.
Kermani's successor will be John Graziano, of Colonie, as voted by the GOP Executive Committee. I am confident John's ability and commitment to the basic fundamentals of the Republican Party will move us forward and get the job done now better than ever, Kermani said.
