Jan 10, 2023 1:03 pm

H. Rose Schneider reports in the Times Union that Albany County's executive, sheriff, and comptroller on Jan. 7 all announced they are running for re-election. Albany County Executive Dan McCoy, Sheriff Craig Apple, and Comptroller Susan Rizzo, all Democrats were at the Carpenters Union Local #291 Training Center in Albany to make the announcement. "This is a great ticket to get behind," Deputy County Executive Daniel Lynch said at the announcement. "I know they're going to do great things in the next four years." New York State Comptroller Tom DiNapoli was there to introduce the candidates, saying, "We are in the path to recovery.... It is a time where we need elected leaders who bring people together." For McCoy, he is attempting to win a fourth term. He mentioned housing and mental health issues exacerbated by the pandemic, worsening weather due to climate change, and economic issues such as inflation and a possible recession as the major obstacles he will face if he wins again. Apple briefly campaigned for a state Senate seat last year, and then quit that race. He has been sheriff since 2011. Rizzo was first elected as county comptroller in 2019.
