Order Postpones Scotia Village Referendum Scheduled for April 7th

Schenectady County Manager, Rory Fluman, issued an emergency order postponing the Scotia Village Referendum scheduled for April 7th. The County received approval late Friday night from the State Health Department to take this action in compliance with Governor Cuomo’s Executive Order concerning local emergency orders.

“The Schenectady County Director of Public Health, as well as both the Democratic and Republican Commissioners of the Schenectady County Board of Elections, requested that I take action to postpone the vote,” said Rory Fluman, Schenectady County Manager. “This action was necessary to protect the public health after the Village declined to voluntarily postpone it.”

The Governor has expressly stated that people should remain at home unless travel is essential—and the Governor postponed various scheduled elections throughout the State to protect public health. “This action is consistent with the Governor’s actions and ensures that the residents of Scotia won’t have to choose between protecting their health and exercising their right to vote,” said Fluman.

This emergency order postpones the vote until the state of emergency is lifted.
