Morse Files 1,600 Signatures in Bid for Cohoes Mayor

Morse also calls for mayoral debates before Democratic primary 

COHOES - Shawn Morse, Democratic candidate for Mayor of Cohoes, has filed more than 1,600 signatures in his bid to become the next Mayor of Cohoes – more than five times the required number to make the ballot for the Sept. 10 primary.

This is about double the amount of petition signatures that opponent Dianne Nolin filed this week.

Morse was joined by family and friends at the Albany County Board of Elections as he filed his petitions. 

“The enthusiasm I’ve seen throughout the city is reflected in today’s filing. The people of Cohoes know my record of independent leadership and experience that will lead this city’s future back on track. I have, as I’ve done all my professional life, will continue to bring a passion to service and will keep the people’s needs first and foremost as the next Mayor of Cohoes,” said Morse. 

Morse also called for mayoral debates ahead of the primary to better inform voters of the choice they’ll make on Sept. 10 to lead the Spindle City. 

“A forum or a debate would be one of the best ways to get in front of potential voters. I am proud to review and talk about my record of effective leadership, accomplishments, and my vision for this city, and would welcome a chance to listen to the positions of others in terms of how they believe this city be directed,” said Morse.
