Alicia Purdy Exposes Dark Secret on Eve of Mayoral Election

Nov. 1, 2021, Albany, NY — Alicia Purdy held a press conference today at her campaign headquarters and revealed secret documents that exposed a long path of corruption within the Sheehan administration, and a coverup in City Hall’s Common Council. Purdy’s tone was somber as she held up a letter from incumbent Mayor Sheehan that had been sent to union workers in the Blue Collar Union Local 66, noting she would be withholding Hero Pay due to a contract dispute, and then another letter, from the union, saying Sheehan had walked away from the negations, not them. And then an internal memo, to the Common Council, from Common Council President Corey Ellis, noting he was aware of Sheehan’s lies and abuses- and that is only where the trail begins.

According to Purdy:

“With Albany’s mayoral election just hours away, voters must stand for our city’s transformation, and vote failed, corrupt mayor Sheehan out of office. The level of insidious corruption and the abuse of power being wielded by incumbent Sheehan over our city’s most dedicated workers is a disgrace to her already sullied legacy of failure. I am ashamed and aghast to learn that there is no limit to what Sheehan will destroy, climb over, manipulate and abuse in order to rule in power over Albany. I stand firm upon the foundation of justice for all, and as the next Mayor of Albany, I will ensure that we will work to pursue justice for our residents and tear down this castle of corruption, brick by brick if we must, leaving no room for such abuses in our future. A vote for ALICIA PURDY FOR MAYOR is, now more than ever, A VOTE FOR ALBANY.”

“It is time for local media and local elected officials to do their job and stand publicly against Sheehan’s corruption, to ask tough questions and demand answers in the interest of justice and restoration for our broken city – or be complicit in these bad acts and abuses of the people.”
