Dermody resigns in Rensselaerville

Andrea Macko reports in the now-biweekly Greenville Mountain View Pioneer (no website) that Rensselaerville Town Supervisor, Democrat Marie Dermody, quit Jan. 24, citing the "political culture" in the town was making it "impossible" to get anything done. In November elections, Democrats lost control of the Town Board. Deputy Supervisor Victor La Plante also resigned. At an emergency meeting the next day, the board appointed Valerie Lounsbury deputy supervisor. The board will appoint a supervisor, and another election will be held in November to fill the seat. At that meeting, Conservative Robert Bolte ripped the yellow tape line off the floor, where Dermody made anyone speaking to the board stand at meetings.
