Democrats performed well in the races for town office but Republicans appear to have picked up a county legislature seat.
A look at the town and county races in Saugerties.
The candidates, their supporters and detractors, weigh in.
Candidates vying for the two four-year town board seats are Vincent Altieri, Paul Andreassen, John Schoonmaker and Donald Tucker.
With two seats wide open, this race could decide the direction of town government for years to come.
A spurned candidate, cross-endorsements, appointment speculation… We’re five weeks away from the election and things are finally coming into focus in the races for town supervisor and town board.
The slates are set for this November’s election, which features lively races for supervisor, town board and two of the three County Legislature seats.
Despite not having Saugerties Republican party endorsement, Ulster County Sheriff’s Captain Vincent Altieri won nomination for a town board seat, alongside GOP pick Donald Tucker, while turning back the party’s other choice, Joe Roberti Jr.
