Weinstein, Schratz will run again in Amherst

By Charlie Specht

Barry Weinstein will seek re-election to Amherst's top job, and he may be joined by another familiar face in town politics.

The Republican supervisor announced this morning that he will run for another four-year term. No challengers have come forward yet to unseat Weinstein, though the race is still early.

Meanwhile, Republican sources say former Council Member Shelly Schratz will seek a seat on the Town Board. 

Earlier this month she said she planned to run for the County Legislature seat held by Democrat Thomas A. Loughran. But she would have faced a primary against town Highway Superintendent Robert Anderson, who appears to have the party's support.
