COLONIE — Supervisor Paula Mahan announced today she will not run for re-election and will retire at the end of the year.
“I’m looking forward to spending more time with my family, traveling, and enjoying the simple things in life,” she said in a statement. “When I became Supervisor in 2008, my first goal was to create a Strategic Financial Management Plan to address the Town’s fiscal crisis. I inherited a huge deficit; the Town was fiscally devastated. It took a tremendous amount of hard work and determination to stabilize the Town’s finances and begin to turn the Town around in a positive direction.”
Two years ago, Mahan won a seventh term by narrowly defeating Republican George Scaringe by a little more than 100 votes.
