McCoy said he is ready to take on the challenge as executive and is ready for the upcoming election season.
"Absolutely, I'm prepared," he said. "I made the hard decision, but I love primaries, I love fighting. But most importantly, people ask me what I think. It's what the constituents think that are putting me in office. What's important to the people of Albany County? So when I go up to Albany County, when you go to the town of Medusa up in Rensselaerville or the City of Cohoes, it's two different issues. But it's trying to put those issues together and trying to make it happen for the people we represent."
