Assembly candidates spar over health care, public land

It's been a lackluster political season in much of the North Country, with many seats going uncontested. But the 115th Assembly district race has sparked fierce debate and fiery rhetoric. The newly-formed district represents Clinton, Franklin and part of St. Lawrence County.

Three candidates -- a Republican, a Democrat and a Conservative, are vying for the seat now held by Assemblywoman Janet Duprey. Duprey faced off with her challengers Monday during a debate in Plattsburgh sponsored by Mountain Lake PBS.

Major flashpoints were affordable healthcare and the Gov. Andrew Cuomo's plan to expand the state forest preserve in the Adirondacks.  Go to full article

Duprey shaken by defacement of campaign signs

Incumbent Assemblywoman Janet Duprey says she's disturbed by the recent defacing of some of her campaign signs along U.S. Route 11.

Her opponents in the race say they sympathize with her but that unfortunately, such vandalism isn't uncommon during heated elections.

Duprey is locked in a three-way race for New York's new 115th Assembly District. She'll appear on the Republican and Independence party lines on Nov. 6, Plattsburgh educator Karen Bisso is on the Conservative Party line, and Plattsburgh City Councilman Tim Carpenter is running as a Democrat.  Go to full article

Janet Duprey, the long-time assemblywoman from Peru, faces a stiff challenge from two conservatives: Plattsburgh educator Karen Bisso and Cadyville businessman David Kimmel.

Profile: Saranac Lake's Mayor Rabideau sparks with ideas and controversy

Clyde Rabideau has emerged as one of the North Country's most enduring, colorful and sometimes controversial politicians. Rabideau was mayor of Plattsburgh for a decade in the 1990s and ran unsuccessfully for lieutenant governor in 1998.

Sixteen months ago, the Democrat was elected mayor of Saranac Lake, the largest community in the Adirondack Park. His latest adventure in politics has been marked by some big successes, including a public campaign to convince the Trudeau Institute to keep its laboratories in Saranac Lake.

But he has also clashed publicly and fiercely with other leaders in the North Country and his brash style is sparking criticism. Brian Mann sat down to talk in-depth with Rabideau and has our profile.  Go to full article

Upset brewing in Assembly race?

This is expected to be a big year for Republicans. But Democrats appear to have a very real shot at capturing the 114th Assembly seat that represents Clinton and Franklin counties.

The district has been a GOP stronghold for generations. But this year, Assemblywoman Janet Duprey, a Republican, is locked in a bitter contest with Conservative candidate David Kimmel.

Their divisive battle could leave an opening for Democrat Rudy Johnston.

All three candidates held a debate last night in Saranac Lake. Brian Mann was there and has our story.  Go to full article

Does New York state need a constitutional convention?

Republican leaders in New York's Assembly say it's time to hold a new constitutional convention to clean up the mess in Albany. They want people's delegates, not politicians, to ask big questions about the structure of state government. Should there be two legislative bodies or just one? Should there be a cap on state spending? Backers of the idea held two public meetings in the North Country yesterday, one near Queensbury and the other in Plattsburgh. Brian Mann has our story.  Go to full article
