Towns ring in new year with swearing in ceremonies

"Its going to be a tough year, I mean from a economic standpoint there's a lot things happening for the country, but to make a difference we got to start right here, locally, to be effective," said Ramotar.

In Niskayuna, Democrats John McKinney and Denise Murphy-McGraw were sworn in and join town Supervisor Joe Landry, who was re-elected for another term. Also sworn in at the event was Town Justice Paul Zonderman and Receiver of Taxes Diane Percy.

"There's a lot of work to be done," said Murphy McGraw. "Whether its trying to build up some of the commercial space in town, that our recreation programs should be for all the families in town, and really making sure the budget is in line and we hold the line on taxes, I think people expect a lot from us but I think we also expect a lot from each other."

"We have a really good team behind us, we have some good people behind us" said Landry. "I look forward to working with Denise and John."

Glenville will hold their first town board meeting of the new year on Jan. 13, while Niskayuna will hold theirs on Jan. 14.""
