"We Did It" : Kathy Sheehan Elected Mayor of Albany
A resounding victory for City Treasurer Kathy Sheehan, who takes the baton from the man who ran Albany for the last two decades, Jerry Jennings. Jennings made a brief appearance at the Polish Community Center, where Democrats had gathered to wait for election returns. He joked about the fact he was dressed casually, "no suit and tie."
Albany County Executive Dan McCoy predicts a "different style of management" under Kathy Sheehan, who sent Republican Jesse Calhoun, Conservative Joseph Sullivan and Green Party candidate Theresa Portelli packing, taking an esimated 85 per cent of the vote.
