Mayoral Candidates Forum: We meet the 3 candidates running for mayor in the city of Plattsburgh. The city is choosing a new Mayor after current mayor Donald Kaspar decided not to seek re-election. Two current city councilors and an independent candidate are running in a 3-way race. All three joined us this week for a candidates forum on the campus on Plattsburgh State University, where they were questioned on topics ranging from taxes to developing the waterfront and the downtown.
New Common Council: The political landscape in Plattsburgh is changing in a big way. The city council will have a whole new look. There’s only one incumbent among the 14 candidates running for the 6 council seats.
Owens on Shutdown: We talk with North Country Congressman Bill Owens about the end of the government shutdown, the roll-out of Obamacare and the technical issues that have plagued the government’s website, as well as the likelihood of yet another budget showdown in congress in the coming weeks.
