Rensselaer County DA McNally leading race in 3rd Judicial District

Rensselaer County District Attorney Richard J. McNally is poised to become a Supreme Court justice in the state’s 3rd Judicial District.

Only 36 percent of precincts had reported election results for that district as of press time Tuesday night. But as of 11:30 p.m., McNally had secured 58 percent of the votes in the race to replace retiring Justice George Ceresia, a Troy native who turns 70 this year.

McNally, a Democrat, had 30,457 votes with 288 of 791 precincts reporting. His opponents, Albany County Family Court Judge W. Dennis Duggan and Greene County attorney Carol Donnelly-Stevens, had 3,531 votes (7 percent) and 18,662 votes (35 percent) respectively.

The 3rd Judicial District covers seven counties, including Schoharie, Albany and Rensselaer.

State Supreme Court justices serve 14-year terms and hear a variety of civil and criminal cases.

McNally, 52, of Valley Falls, ran on the Democratic and Independence lines. He graduated from the St. John’s University School of Law in 1987 and became district attorney in 2008. He also has experience as a public defender and in private practice.
