Cohoes Mayor Shawn Morse Gets More Competition For His Job

Cohoes Mayor Shawn Morse is facing another challenger in a June primary.

Former City Treasurer Peter Frangie joins William Keeler and City Councilman Steve Napier in the race, saying he wants to control spending, support emergency services, and save the Cohoes Community Center.

Frangie believes the abuse allegations against Morse have hurt the community's trust in local government.

Morse, facing allegations of domestic violence, is also the subject of an ongoing FBI investigation into his campaign spending.
