Dems in the news:
Schodack Democratic Committee member Lillian DeMattia of Castleton was featured in Congressman Paul Tonko's 2014 campaign commercial.
State Senate candidate Brian Howard (center) joined Southern Rensselaer County Democrats at the Schodack Democrat's booth at Goold Orchard's Apple Festival. Staffing the booth were Anne Burton, Rensselaer City committee member, Pam Broughton, Linda Underwood and Bettyann Johnsen, Schodack committee members.
The Schodack Democratic Club's annual picnic saw its biggest turnout in years. Many people returned after a few years away, and there were lots of new faces in the crowd.
All the local candidates showed up to socialize and speak with attendees on the key issues of their respective races. Congressional candidates Paul Tonko, NY 20, Sean Eldridge, NY 19, Brian Howard, NYS Senate 43 ED, Phil Malone, NYS Assembly 107 AD, and Rensselaer County DA candidate Carmelo Laquidara joined in the fun.
