Dwyer Victorious In Rensselaer
The Mayor of Rensselaer has been re-elected.
Democratic Rensselaer Mayor Dan Dwyer, first elected in 2006, won a fourth term Tuesday.
Under his leadership, the city has avoided property tax increases for three years in a row. Dwyer serves as a member of the city Budget Committee.
"...we've got costs under control. And we're moving ahead with development down here on the riverfront. We're a business-friendly city too," said Dwyer.
The Democrat pulled in more than 1,000 votes, besting Republican challenger Jim Konstantakis' tally of 799.
