Albany's 11th Ward

Great piece in the Metroland today. Hopefully they will do more of these. Simple question and answer bit for the two candidates in the 11th Ward. Incumbent Glen Casey and challenger Peter Caracappa.

Issues that seem to be shaping up that are addressed here:

  • Convention Center
  • Police Review Board
  • Charter Schools
  • Neighborhoods
  • Common council meeting attendence records (issue for incumbents)

Those seem like most of the big points. How about it? Any other things you think should be discussed by the candidates? What is going to win your vote?

This article is the type of information that will be archived on the new site. That way when it gets closer to the election, those in the 11th ward will have a place to find information about their candidates.
