Albany City Council Vacancy to be Filled Tonight

Three residents have applied for the open seat on the Albany City Council.

Tonight one of three Albany residents will be selected to fill the vacant seat on the Albany City Council.

According to the City of Albany website, Margaret (Peggy) McQuaid, Rochelle Nason and Nick Pilch have applied for the seat left vacant after the Albany City Council selected Vice Mayor Joanne Wile to replace the late Mayor Peggy Thomsen and Council member Peter Maass was appointed to fill the position of Vice Mayor on June 16.

It wasn't and or I didn't see it the first time. Who is Rochelle Nason and what has she done for Albany? I guess it really doesn't matter since we don't get to vote.

Rochelle Nason was named to the spot opened by the death of Peggy Thompson. Nason received four votes on the first round. Then there was a tie-breaker ballot to see who would face off with her. After three deadlocked rounds, Mayor Wile switched her vote and Nick Pilch won the run-off. The final tally was Nason 3, Pilch 1. The mayor said her decision was based on his environmental records, which will be important because the waterfront will be a major topic between now and the election.
