Best Public Servant — Dominick Calsolaro
Albany Common Council
Dominick Calsolaro has got the brains and integrity that we want in all of our public leaders, but we rarely get what we want. We do have Calsolaro in the First Ward, though, and we are thankful for that. In so many instances, from the ghost tickets to the landfill to the budget, Calsolaro has been the voice of reason, sounding alarms based on his consistently thorough and thoughtful research. Sometimes he is wrong, most of the time he is right, but he is always sincere, and few will challenge his civic-minded motivation.
