Bill Nelson With Future MOC Stefanik in 2014Mayor Bill Nelson is out of office but did four terms in the Maple City. He knows how state government works (President of NY Conference of Mayors), is a good speaker and an attractive candidate.
Sure, after all those years as mayor, he has his detractors in the 'Burg, but this is a candidate who could win against Addie Russell.
Sure the former Olympic bobsledder and the former bar owner are nice guys but I really think Bill could mount a solid challenge. Someone who could win on their merits.
