Handful of primaries Tuesday in Saratoga County


There will be six municipal-level party primaries Tuesday in communities in Saratoga County.

The only town in which a town supervisor’s office is potentially at stake is in Corinth, where two current Town Board members are competing for the Republican nomination to run for town supervisor. With incumbent supervisor Richard Lucia retiring this year after nearly 30 years in office, C. Eric Butler and Jeffrey Collura are both seeking the nomination. With two Town Board seats open, Joseph F. Mihalek, Edward C. Byrnes and Kiley M. Crooks are also seeking the GOP nomination.

In Clifton Park, two candidates are in a primary for the Conservative nomination for two justice. James F. Hughes, also on the Republican line, is being challenged by Jennifer P. Jeram, who already has the Democratic party line.

In Mechanicville, the Democratic nomination for public safety commissioner is in dispute, with Frederick H. Hosley Jr. facing Timothy J. Hipwell.

In Saratoga Springs, where the city is represented by two members on the Saratoga County Board of Supervisors, three people are running for the Working Families nomination. The candidates are Democratic incumbent Tara A. Gaston, Bruce Altimar and Gabriel P. O’Brien.

In Stillwater, there is a Republican primary for town clerk between Jennifer M. Weaver and Danielle M. Cowin.

In Providence, there is a Republican primary for Town Board, with four people seeking the two available seats. The candidates are Audrey G. LaHoff, William K. Hartman, Adrian F. VanHall, and Paul C. Munchbach. LaHoff and Hartman are incumbents.

In those communities, polling places will be open from 6 a.m. to 9 p.m. Tuesday.

Early voting sites are open this weekend at the Board of Elections office, 50 W. High St., Ballston Spa, and at the Clifton Park Town Hall, at the corner of Vischer Ferry and Clifton Park Center roads.
