Let the people decide just as the Hon. Vincent Riggi Schenectady City Councilman proposed. Party hacks filling a seat waiting for the election is a disservice to the voting population in the City of Schenectady. Manipulation of the system is not what our forefathers perceived in our democracy. No party should be making the decisions. Only the people who elect the officials to serve in their interests representing their community. This is why we have elections.
