JOHNSTOWN - Three-way Republican and Conservative primary races are set for Gloversville City Court judge and town of Broadalbin assessor in light local election activity this fall in Fulton County.
Major party candidates had from Monday through Thursday to file their election petitions with the county Board of Elections.
Only six offices are up for competition this year, and no Democrats filed.
Primary Day will be Sept. 13, and General Election Day will be Nov. 6. Potential independent candidates also can file petitions from Aug. 14 through 21.
According to the elections board, incumbent Republican Gloversville City Court Judge John N. Clo filed his petitions last week for re-election. Clo had announced his candidacy in mid-February.
Clo will face Sept. 13 GOP primary challenges from former City Attorney Matthew E. Trainor, who announced his candidacy in March, and local attorney Traci DiMezza, who announced she was running in April.
All three candidates also will face each other in a Conservative primary.
Elsewhere this local election year, former Fulton County Board of Supervisors Chairman Peter Stone filed this week as a Republican candidate for town of Oppenheim justice. He faces no opposition.
The two seats of Republican Johnstown City Water Board members Richard J. Ricciardi and Anthony Caruso expire this year. Both filed this week for re-election and face no opposition.
Two-way Republican and Conservative primaries are also set for an assessor vacancy in the town of Broadalbin. Filing petitions were Dennis Horton and Lola Lynn-Steele.
Republican Joseph Dickenson Sr. is seeking re-election as a justice in the town of Ephratah, facing no opposition.
