There is a potential third Democratic candidate for City Court judge which, if attorney Keith Gorman is successful in getting enough signatures, would force a primary.
Incumbent Chris Maier is looking to get re-elected to a second term, and Corporation Counsel Ian Silverman also has the backing of the Democratic Party proper for the newly created full time, $113,900 a year judicial position in Troy City Court.
The lone Republican to express an interest is attorney Jill Kehn.
The way the elections - primary and general - will work, though, is the two candidates with the highest vote total will win so Maier will not simply defend his seat while the other two vie for the new spot.
Gorman has a practice based in Latham. Sources say he picked up walking sheets, petition forms and maps from the Board of Elections.
More information as it becomes available.
(Also, I will post something later tonight on the last night's Council hearing.)
