Kathy Sheehan wins in Primary election
ALBANY - Kathy Sheehan has cleared what should be her biggest hurdle in becoming the next mayor of the city.
She defeated Corey Ellis in the Democratic Primary with 66 percent of the vote.
Sheehan is currently the city treasurer and faces Republican challenger, newcomer Jessie Calhoun, in November.
The last Republican to be elected mayor in Albany was James Watt in 1917.
