"Pickles" for legislature

Michael "Pickles" Picarillo, the city's superintendent of streets, could soon be appointed to the Rensselaer County Legislature to fill the vacant seat of Legistlator Nancy McHugh, who passed away in February.

Pickles, who has been with the city Department of Public Works for 36 years, was chosen for the seat by Legistlative Chairman Neil Kelleher.

The official vote to appoint him will be cast on April 14. If appointed, Picarillo will have to run for re-election along with the rest of the legislature in November.

Read more about it in Dave Canfield's article.

I've known Pickles for over 30 years and can honestly say he is a man for the people. Doesn't matter if your a Dem or Rep, he will help you 24/7. Good luck Pickles, I know you'll do great.

Great !!! give more power to "god Almighty Mirch!! they had to pick his sidekick!! Maybe they will hash out when they will pretend to vote for themselves while lounging at the summer camp....You know, "I will vote against you when we know we have enough votes to carry and people will think we are not in cohoots"....Remember this at election time!!!
