Keeping public works in the family

Democrat Bill McTygue is planning to run for Commissioner of Public Works against incumbent Republican Anthony “Skip” Scirocco.

He confirmed his plans to run in a phone interview this afternoon.

McTygue's brother, Tom, served as DPW Commissioner until Scirocco beat him in 2007. Tom McTygue was first elected in 1971 and served 32 years in office, with only a four-year hiatus from 1978 to 1982.

Their father, Charles McTygue , also served as commissioner of public works.

"Iʼm running for office and a seat on the City Council simply because I believe I can do a significantly better job than is being done by the incumbent commissioner; a better job at administering to the Cityʼs business at the Council table; a better job in delivering City services; and a better job for the future of the Department of Public Works and itʼs 110 employees," Bill McTygue said in a statement.

Saratoga Springs Democratic Committee Chairman Charles Brown said the committee would interview McTygue before Saturday, when they plan on endorsing their full slate of candidates.
