Not since 1921....

Big day for representational democracy in Albany. This is the first time there has been a weighted roll call vote in Albany County since 1921. Despite efforts by Mayor Jennings to control the outcome of the election of the new Election Commissioner for Albany County, his candidate lost (this is becoming a pretty common phrase related to Albany elections- Soares, Walsch, Clancy, various school board members, judges...the list goes on). To Lebrun:

"This is big. This is very big.....Jerry Jennings took a heavy prestige hit Wednesday night" F. Lebrun

Only an hour to WROW and Mayor Jennings weekly show. Should be fun.
