Holiday Gathering
Thanks to everyone who attended our Holiday Gathering at Washington Tavern. We collected over $200 to be used for sending care packages to our troops serving overseas!

New Year, New Look


A new year is upon us and with the changing of the calendar comes a new look for the Albany County Young Democrats email updates. Change is a good thing, and we hope you find the new style enjoyable and more informative. If you haven't done so already, add albanyyd@gmail.com to your contact list as our main point of contact for the organization.

January, like so many before it, signals the beginning of legislative session here in Albany. As the Young Democrats chapter based in Albany we have a unique perspective each year as the Assembly and Senate return to town. On Wednesday, January 4th at 1:30pm Governor Cuomo will be delivering his State of the State address, which traditionally kicks off the start of the legislative session each year, in the Albany Convention Center.

We also don't have to remind you that 2012 is an election year with President Obama at the top of the ticket. The GOP nomination cycle has officially begun starting today with the Iowa caucuses where the crowd of Republican presidential candidates vying to take on the President this November battle it out. The New Hampshire primary is only a few days away, so we hope you're buckled in for what is shaping up to be an interesting 9 months leading up to election day and everything in between.

In a bit of sad news, ex-county sheriff and former County Legislator George Infante passed away Monday at the age of 92. He served as sheriff from 1980 until 1990 and was elected to the Albany County Legislature in 1994 until deciding not to run for re-election in 2011. The Albany Times Union has a story on his passing here.

Stay tuned for the announcement of our next meeting. As always, don't forget to head over to our website & our official Facebook page to get connected with us. Are you a Twitter user? Follow us at @ACYDalbany and don't forget to retweet!
