Alicia Purdy’s Remarks on Albany Double Shootings Draw Continued Attention

July 21, 2021, Albany, NY — Alicia Purdy’s passion for the city of Albany prompted her strong words for residents in Albany following two shootings in the city on the same day on July 17th. Purdy, whose energetic campaign has drawn the attention of residents across the city and across the aisle, spoke out against the well-documented and continued failures of Albany’s Police Chief and incumbent mayor Kathy Sheehan to effectively address violent crime, and she encouraged Albany’s residents with a message of hope for their future. In the subsequent days, her heartfelt and impassioned words continue to amass viewers and comments from people across the Capital Region.

According to Purdy:

“My words have clearly struck a chord with people across the Capital Region whose lives have been affected by the violence in Albany. We all agree that the violence in Albany must be addressed, post-haste. We all agree that the disconnected, apathetic leadership of Albany is a proven failure. We all agree that transformation must come to our city before more of our loved ones are shot down in the street like animals. We all agree that Albany needs a mayor who cares more about people than politics. This is why I have stepped up as “The People’s Mayor” to be part of the transformation we are literally dying for. Yes, my words were strong, and my message was clear: The time has come to transform Albany – starting with Alicia Purdy as Mayor of Albany so we can stay alive and THRIVE!”
