Another Mayoral Candidate Releases Tax Returns

May 23, 2017

A second Albany mayoral candidate has released personal income tax returns.

Green Party hopeful Dan Plaat has released three yearsworth of tax returns, after Democratic Common Councilor Frank Commisso Junior became the first to release his returns last week. Commisso did not ask other candidates to follow suit. In an emailed statement Plaat noted "Commisso has released his returns to show he is clean of special interests (no problem with that), I would point out mine show I have a shared interest with working and poor people in the city." Common Council President Carolyn McLaughlin, also running for mayor, has said she won't be releasing hers.  Mayor Kathy Sheehan has declined to comment. Conservative candidate Joe Sullivan and the fourth Democrat vying for mayor, activist Marlon Anderson, haven’t released theirs.
