Welcome to Campaign Notebook

A staple for years in The Record’s print edition, Campaign Notebook is going digital, and it will have a touch of another long-time print staple, Talespin.
This is going to be a fun election year to say the least:
- County Executive Kathy Jimino is up for re-election as is County Clerk Frank Merola, both Republicans.
- All 19 members of the Rensselaer County Legislature and nine seats of the Troy City Council are all up for grabs too.
- There is a family court judge seat on the ballot as well as a seat for county court judge in Rensselaer County.
- We’re pretty sure there will be a battle in North Greenbush. Actually, we’d be surprised if there wasn’t a battle in North Greenbush.
- There is what appears to be shaping up as the most serious challenge to Mayor Jerry Jennings has faced over in Albany.
- We will also keep you up to date on a number of other elections in towns and cities in Rensselaer, Albany and Saratoga counties.
The Silly Season is just getting going but one thing we can guarantee it will get a lot busier and a lot more fun.

neck to re-post and archive without it.

Why did the Record recently require 'registration'-to post comments on on-line stories when it still allows 'Sound Off" comments to be published without any--'Background Check'??--seems a bit like a double standard

What kind of pictures of Jim Franco does his employer have that would force him to do his posting at 4:30 AM??---

Seems like the Record is on top of its game, as this blog is running under two pages with two different sets of comments.

This one http://www.troyrecord.com/articles/2009/04/06/news/doc49da17ad2925e968672797.txt
