Election delay costs candidates money

December 18, 2003

Albany -- Albany's election delay is not just costing the city time it needs to organize, it's also costing the candidates running for office money. No date has been set by Federal Judge Louis Sands for the voters to elect a mayor and city commissioners.

Many of candidates did not anticipate an extend campaign and have had to spend money on new signs and staff members. "Certainly there was a time frame on the bill boards and there were dates on the signs but all that was in anticipation that the election would be November the 4th," says mayoral candidate, Dr. Willie Adams.

Albany city elections were delayed this year when the city failed to prepare an acceptable election plan. Judge Sands is set to announce an official election date soon.
