Thearse McCalmon Wants To Be Schenectady's Next Mayor
As Democratic Schenectady Mayor Gary McCarthy gears up to seek a third term, an African-American woman has declared her candidacy.
Thearse McCalmon is originally from New York City. The Democrat settled in the Electric City while in her early 20s, after a tragedy left her family homeless for three months. Now at age 41, McCalmon has a background in education, retail management and banking.
