    The rumble in Round Lake is over. As its first order of business, a newly appointed seven-member Board of Trustees held an emergency meeting Wednesday night and unanimously voted to reinstate longtime librarian Theresa Marchione to her job with back pay. "Come on back, Theresa," said Bill Ryan as sustained applause from the audience filled Village Hall. Marchione, a familiar face at the Wesley Avenue facility for decades, had been terminated for shutting down the library 40 minutes early on May 29 because of a tornado warning. A powerful twister touched down later in nearby Vischer Ferry. Since Marchione's dismissal,...

    ALBANY, NY — Sen. Roy McDonald will announce Thursday that he will not push forward with a third-party campaign, two people familiar with this campaign said. One source said McDonald, a two-term Republican incumbent who lost a GOP primary to Saratoga County Clerk Kathy Marchione, made his decision "for the good of the party." He has been largely silent since the Sept. 13 primary, as he weighed whether to push toward the November general election on the Independence Party line, which he secured over the summer. While she always maintained her platform was broader, Marchione's challenge to McDonald was shaped...

    Hudson, NY - Kathy Marchione, who has been Saratoga County Clerk since 1997, decided to challenge state Sen. Roy McDonald in the Republican primary for the 43rd District seat in part due to his 2011 vote in favor of same sex marriage in the state. “I would not have voted for gay marriage,” Marchione said in a phone interview last week. “He actually told people he was voting no and then he voted yes. I won’t tell people something and do something else.” Marchione calls herself a “true conservative” and said her belief is that the definition of marriage is...

    'TROY, N.Y. — Before State Senator Roy J. McDonald, a Republican, voted last year to legalize same-sex marriage, he told reporters that anyone unhappy with his position could “take the job and shove it.” Now comes the test.' 'Mr. McDonald’s challenger, Kathleen A. Marchione, the Saratoga County clerk, is running an insurgent campaign, dialing voters from a windowless office next to a Subway sandwich shop. She accuses Mr. McDonald of having deceived the voters who elected him by changing his position on same-sex marriage, which he voted to oppose in the past. “People feel betrayed,” Ms. Marchione said. “I’ve heard...
