Kehn beats Gorman for second Troy judge seat; Maier cruises to another term


KEHN
Jill Kehn will become the second city court judge alongside incumbent Judge Chris Maier, who led the three candidates running for two spots on the bench, according to unofficial results from the Rensselaer County Board of elections.

When she is sworn in on Jan. 1, she will become Troy's first ever female city court judge.
Kehn, who ran on the Republican, Conservative, Independence, Green and Working Families Party lines, ended up with 30.48 percent, or 4,457 votes to Democrat Keith Gorman’s 24.74 percent, or 3,618 votes. Maier, a Democrat who had four additional lines, ended with 44.55 percent, or 6,515 votes.
GORMAN
The newly created position carries a 10-year term.
Gorman beat the Democratic Party’s pick, Troy Corporation Counsel Ian Silverman, in a primary to earn a spot on the ballot.

MAIER
Kehn came under fire when it was revealed her law license was suspended from 1999 to 2005 because she failed to follow the two-year registration requirements. It was also disclosed she practiced law during the time her license was suspended. She said she was unaware of the suspension because she was raising her children, taking care of an ill family member and had moved.

  2. I want to congratulate Jill and also thank her for her brave victory last night. When you think the Troy voters are so brainwashed by the Dem mantra we have been given a glimmer of hope. Thank you for running a clean campaign and not bowing to the slop as did your opponent. In city hall today I wonder if the Lou, Pete and Dunne will be still bragging "no matter how bad we are this city will only vote dem" ? Wake up call.

    2. She only won because Dems did not vote Gorman.

    3. Poor Chris Meier, he'll be pulling the heavy load with this nitwit on the bench. He and Matt better give Jilly a quick tutorial on the importance of deadlines and opening mail.

    5. She only won because she had Uncle Matt doing his part and and Mr. BULLY himself Tom Wade playing his dirty games. He may have gotten away with it before but not this time. I'd be nervous if I were Wade and his puppets. By the way, has Jill kept up with the requirements for getting her license renewed? You know, it's not just the check anymore. Has anybody checked into this before she sits on that bench? I sure hope so.

  3. Today's lesson teaming up with Rodney and the Coxs family is like pissing your pants in a black suit. It's a warm feeling but no one notices you. I hope Rodney and the boys got a lesson from Tom Wade last night threw the Gorman loss. Wade had a republican beat your man wait till next year when he has all his candidates in your election. Your all done.

  4. I was going to vote for Gorman until I got the letter from Bob Doherty asking for my vote for him. The death knell was seeing Robert Cox putting up signs for him and posting his support fro Gorman on Facebook.

  6. If you are saying Tom Wade is the one responsible for Keith Gorman's loss yesterday, then Tom Wade and his puppets should be looking for a good lawyer because they will need one. Are you that stupid to share that information with the public? You may think you have your actions covered but the nature of people is to share the "dirt" they know. And if you remember your history which by your comments is questionable, people have lost their jobs and whatever little reputation they had for doing the very things you have said. Also, for all those who blame the Gorman camp for Mailing Permit 730, they were not the ones who where responsible for mailing that...but I know who is. You have opened a can of worms that I know you will regret.

  7. If I had known it was Mrs. Gorman from school I would have voted for her husband. Saw the signs on properties owned by some sketchy people, voted for Kehn. Sorry, class of 2001.

  8. Keith how's that democratic thing working for you? You got kicked in the Coxs over that move. Your like Rodney now "you get no respect".

  11. Why do we worry what party a person is instead of what they stand for. Our country county city has suffered because we cherish our Party. Give me someone who can be a leader and I will not care what party they are. We are running out of time to save our city.

  12. Will someone explain the references to a flyer / mailing piece used in the campaign ? Exactly what was it all about and who put it out ?

    ReplyDelete
  13. Dirty flyer sent out by Gorman and his nasty group of followers. Keith and honey booboo can use any excuse they want but it was the people he associated himself with that cost a dem an election in a dem town.
