Gordon tabbed by Dems

Judge Richard Gordon has opted to step down from the bench in order to pursue a run for Whitehall town supervisor.

 

 

 

 

Gordon retired effective as of Friday, Aug. 14, after being named the Whitehall Democratic Party’s choice for the position of town supervisor.

“My thing was that I was not going to run for judge again this year, but I wanted to finish what I had started in the court,” said Gordon. “I said no at first to running for supervisor, but then I thought about it and felt that, hopefully, I can make a difference.”

Gordon said he is hoping he can help with concerns over taxes and where the town should move its offices to.

“Eventually, I want to see everything together,” said Gordon.

Gordon will be running against three other candidates for the position of supervisor as George Armstrong, David Waters and Orson Kingsley will face off in the Republican Primary on Sept. 15, with the winner receiving local GOP backing. All three candidates have filed independent petitions and will be on the November ballot regardless of the primary outcome. Current town Supervisor Vernon Scribner is not seeking re-election, opting instead to run for a position on the Town Council with the GOP.

For the Democrats, former town Councilman Richard LaChapelle will seek to regain a seat on the Town Council. LaChapelle currently serves as a sergeant in the Whitehall Village Police Department.

He will be joined on the Democratic ticket by George Enny, who will also look to be voted into one of the two council seats that are up for election this year.

Current Village Justice Julie Scott will be on the ballot in November as a candidate for one of two town justice seats for the Democrats, along with Richard Juckett.

Robert Juckett will be running for the Democrats for the position of town highway superintendent.

The November General Election will take place on Tuesday, Nov. 3.
