A possible third Democratic Party City Court candidate


JUDGE MAIER
There is a potential third Democratic candidate for City Court judge which, if attorney Keith Gorman is successful in getting enough signatures, would force a primary.
Incumbent Chris Maier is looking to get re-elected to a second term, and Corporation Counsel Ian Silverman also has the backing of the Democratic Party proper for the newly created full time, $113,900 a year judicial position in Troy City Court.
The lone Republican to express an interest is attorney Jill Kehn.
The way the elections - primary and general - will work, though, is the two candidates with the highest vote total will win so Maier will not simply defend his seat while the other two vie for the new spot.
Gorman has a practice based in Latham. Sources say he picked up walking sheets, petition forms and maps from the Board of Elections.
More information as it becomes available.
(Also, I will post something later tonight on the last night's Council hearing.)

    1. The third entrant probably has called the Republicans. They probably don't want him either.

  4. I know Wade wants Silverman but there are many of us in the party who don't agree. His legal handling of the mayor and deputy mayor leaves a lot to be desired. I'll opt for Gorman.

    2. I think Wade needs to have his head examined. Some of his choices over the past few years are mind-boggling at best. Anyone connected to Wade seem to flop like a fish after about 2 years.

    2. Brian's busy working for Kenny and Rodney. All were dealt a huge blow the other night when Kenny got thrown out as committeeman and Rodney and Doherty were advised the would not get the dem endorsement. Whoever was out here spouting Rabbit and crew were taking over underestimated Wade.

  9. The time for change is now. I think we should get rid of the incumbents and put in new blood. My support is going to Keith Gorman. He has the experience we need and handles himself like a true professional. When you add considerate and nice to the package, it's a win win situation. If you don't know Gorman, you should check him out. A good choice.

  10. Troy is trying to make a come back and from what I saw at the Farmers Market Saturday, it has a chance. In order to be successful, change has to take place. Let's thank our incumbents for their efforts and tell them their job is done. New era, new officials. Time for them to step off the pulpit and recognize that they are not God. We need maturity, professionalism, and most of all experience! I am not familiar with Jill Kehn but I do know Keith Gorman's reputation. Someone else wrote that he would be a win win choice. I have to agree. He would have my vote and a lot of others that I know of.
