Village of Albion: 2018 Election

Joyce Riley – Candidate for Mayor
Sandra Walter – Candidate for Trustee
Jason Dragon – Candidate for Trustee

We are candidates for the March 20, 2018 election in the Village of Albion. We recognize that times change and the Village of Albion today is shouldering an unfairly high burden of taxes – which has depressed property values and driven residents away. Too many basic services are still being provided by the village instead of being provided by the county and towns. We will change this situation and make the village a more attractive place to live and a more affordable location for investment. We ask for your support and together we can ensure a prosperous future for the Village of Albion.

Over the next few months we will be holding a number of events to engage the community. Please feel free to contact any candidate with issues or concerns.

It’s Time for Early Voting in New York State

Excelsior State Logo

Dear Fellow New Yorker,

Voting is the cornerstone of our democracy. We should be making it easier for people to vote, not putting up barriers. Unfortunately, New York remains one of the few states that does not offer early voting, and even requires an excuse to request an absentee ballot.

It’s time to change that. I am advancing legislation to fund voting reforms, including the opportunity to vote early in every county across the state, but I need your help to make it happen.

Sign the petition and tell the State Legislature to enact early voting.

This legislation will allow New Yorkers to vote in-person 12 days leading up to Election Day, including at least five hours on weekends. It’s part of my Democracy Agenda — a bold set of reforms to modernize New York’s antiquated voting system and ensure our elections remain free and transparent.

No one should have to choose between exercising their sacred right to vote and going to work, school, or a personal commitment. It’s time to join the 37 other states that already have early voting and make sure more voices are heard in our democratic process.

Show your support for early voting now.

Ever Upward,

Governor Andrew M. Cuomo

The Orleans County Democratic Committee is organizing a NY-27 Congressional Candidate public forum on Tuesday, March 6, 2018 at the QWL Building on 3595 State School Road, Albion, NY 14411.

Nick Stankevich and Nate McMurray are active Democratic Candidates for the NY-27 Congressional office. (The following people have withdrawn their candidacy: Sean Bunny, Tom Casey, and Joan Elizabeth Seamans.) Both Nick and Nate have confirmed their intention to participate. Our county committee has made no endorsement in this race and looks forward to hearing equally from all candidates.
