New Scotland Dems eye incumbents

Candidates point to prior accomplishments, hopeful for support

— Among building up cash reserve to around $2 million, Dolin pointed to other accomplishments such as the recent rezoning of more than 200 acres of Industrial-zoned land, demolishing unsafe buildings and relocating the town court to a “safer” building.

“There are so many things we have done but we have to continue doing them and continue to fine tune them,” LaGrange said. “We have been well below the 2 percent cap every year and there was even a year or two where we actually had a (tax decrease).”

Guyer, who was elected last year as highway superintendent to fill a vacancy, moved his way up through the ranks at the town’s Highway Department during the last 15 years.

“I lived in the town my entire life,” Guyer said. “I had a very good turnout last November … and I hope that continues and I feel it will.”

Mackey was confidant incumbents would be reelected. He said the supervisor and Town Board candidates ran on stopping big box development in the town and accomplished their goals through zoning law changes.

“I think the public, which overwhelming supported them four years ago, will give them credit for having done what they said they are going to do,” Mackey said. “I think they have all done a great job and the prospect of all of them being elected is very high.”
