ALBANY, N.Y. (NEWS10) — On November 2, voters in Albany will decide whether to reelect Mayor Kathy Sheehan or let someone else lead the city. One of the candidates trying to unseat Sheehan is Alicia Purdy.

Purdy sits down with NEWS10 to discuss the issues facing the city and why voters should pick her.

Among her many platforms, the Republican is running as a law and order candidate. Violent crime has taken center stage since the shooting on October 9 that left one person dead and six others injured.
