At their September 10 caucus, Shandaken Republicans packed the town hall as they chose Rob Stanley over Bob Cross as candidate for town supervisor. Donald Brewer and Russell Roefs were selected to run for town council, defeating a third nominee, Randy Ostrander. Brewer and Roefs will compete with Democrats Gael Alba and Peter DiSclafani for two seats on the town board. Republicans Jeffrey Feldman and John Horn are the candidates for two tax assessor positions. Democratic picks for assessor were Dave Channon and Janice Baker, but Baker has dropped out and been replaced by Fionna Tanzillo, the runner-up at both caucuses. Eric Hofmeister was unopposed for highway superintendent, and Joyce Grant was unopposed for town clerk. Hofmeister, Grant, and Stanley also received nominations from the Democrats.
