Domestic Dispute At Mayoral Candidate's Home


Troy police were called to the home of a mayoral candidate Thursday night.

Authorities tell the Times Union they answered a call to Lansingburgh, where Republican mayoral hopeful and City Councilman Jim Gordon and his wife were engaged in a "verbal argument."  No arrests were made, Gordon telling police "It wasn't anything serious," that his wife did summon police but she later came to regret making the call.

Two officers showed up around 5:30 p.m. at Gordon's Seventh Avenue residence, following protocol for responding to the report of a domestic incident.
