Berne Dems withdraw support for Apple

Apr 05, 2023 12:46 am

The Altamont Enterprise reports that Berne Democratic Committee members have withdrawn their support for Albany County Sheriff Craig Apple, who is running for re-election in November. Berne resident and former supervisor Kevin Crosier, a Democrat, was removed from a public hearing last month by county deputies because the current town supervisor Dennis Palow, a Republican, ordered the deputies to remove him from the Feb. 20 public hearing. Democratic Committee member Peggy Christman, a retired lieutenant with the State Police who lost to Palow in 2021, wrote to Apple on March 6 saying it was Apple’s “responsibility to make clear that your Deputies did not act appropriately.” Apple did not write back. So the Berne Democratic Committee will not carry petitions for Apple for his fall campaign. Apple did not get back to the Enterprise for a comment, nor did he explain why his deputies forced a citizen out of a public meeting in February.
