Vote 2011: Winds of change whirling

Gathering at the Steel Pier in Lake George Wednesday, the trio of Lake George Citizens Group candidates victorious in the Nov. 8 General Election discuss immediate objectives in preparing to take office in January. Discussing plans are (left to right): Board Member-Elect Marisa Muratori, Supervisor-Elect Dennis Dickinson, and Board Member-Elect Dan Hurley. The three independent/Democratic office-seekers, backed by the Citizens Group, will constitute a majority of the town board, which for decades has been dominated by Republicans.

It was a season of upsets, surprises and comebacks for elections in Warren County, as campaigns culminated Tuesday with a considerable number of new citizens taking over offices of leadership in local government.

At no place in the county was this more apparent than in the town of Lake George, where an independent, upstart group disrupted the political status quo and swept their entire slate of candidates into office.
