The City of Troy, New York, "Where Henry Hudson Turned Around."

Saturday, October 01, 2005



Robert Jacon, the only responsible choice for Rensselaer County Court Judge, will be interviewed by Justice Now. The interview will be aired on Monday, October 3, at 5:00PM on channel 18. Tune in and listen to the candidate and see what he's all about. After all, there is an election. We don't have to accept Bruno's creature.


The six Democratic candidates for the Rensselaer County Legislature from Troy will host the next stop of The 2005 Democratic Listening Tour of Rensselaer County on Tuesday, October 4th at 6:30PM at the First United Presbyterian Church, 1915 Fifth Avenue, between Fulton and Grand Streets. The Community Forum will be an opportunity for residents of Troy to voice theirs concerns on issues.

According to the candidates, the forum will not be a debate or forum for partisan posturing. There wont be any campaign speeches, the real objective is to listen and hear from the people in our district. The candidates hosting the event are Peter Grimm, Michael Rourke, Anne Rua, Erin Blakeborough, Russell Ziemba, and James Grenier. They see the forum as an important part of developing a platform that reflects residents concerns and is based on real issues, not campaign slogans.

The Rensselaer County Democratic Listening Tour is modeled after the successful undertaking of U.S. Senator Hillary Clinton. The forums will be run similar to town hall meetings where residents have an opportunity to share their views. For more information on future stops of the Listening Tour, contact the County Democratic website at
