We noted yesterday that the Working Families Party is backing Corey Ellis for mayor in Albany. They’re also endorsing Kathy Sheehan for city Treasurer and candidates in seven Common Council races. They are:
First Ward: Incumbent Dominick Calsolaro
Fourth Ward: Incumbent Barbara Smith
Sixth Ward: Incumbent Richard Conti
Seventh Ward: Incumbent Cathy Fahey
Ninth Ward: Incumbent Jim Sano
10th Ward: Leah Golby
11th Ward: Luck Gucker
Like the Democrats, the WFP is not endorsing in the races for chief city auditor and Common Council president.
“People were split on who was the best candidate,” said Karen Scharff, co-chair of the Capital District Working Families Party.
