The race to replace retiring Colonie Town Supervisor Paula Mahan is taking shape. The town Republican Party says Peter Crummey will step down as town justice to run. The Democrats are backing Kelly Mateja to replace Mahan, a Democrat who has served as supervisor in the Albany County town since 2008. Mahan won re-election by about 100 votes in 2019.

Crummey says he’s the best candidate for the job, citing decades of service including 21 on the bench and time as a county legislator and town attorney. Crummey spoke with WAMC’s Ian Pickus on Friday.

A lifelong resident of the Capital Region, Ian joined WAMC in late 2008 and became news director in 2013. He began working on Morning Edition and has produced The Capitol Connection, Congressional Corner, and several other WAMC programs. Ian can also be heard as the host of the WAMC News Podcast and on The Roundtable and various newscasts. Ian holds a BA in English and journalism and an MA in English, both from the University at Albany, where he has taught journalism since 2013.
