Apr 5, 2021
Albany County Legislator George Langdon announced his resignation following backlash over homophobic remarks he made at an event in Voorheesville that were caught on tape.
Langdon released the following statement on Monday afternoon.
During the past several days, I have taken time to reflect and consider how to best serve our community moving forward. It is with a heavy heart that I have decided to resign my seat at the Albany County Legislature.
I again express my sincerest apologies to all those who were hurt by my rash and thoughtless statements. It was never my intention to single-out or target anyone. I truly believe every individual should have the right to life and liberty in their pursuit of happiness.

The April 1st deadline has arrived, but members of the Legislature are still trying to finalize a new state budget.

By Bill Galluccio
Charlotte Hornets v Cleveland Cavaliers
LaMelo Ball did not play well in his much-anticipated NBA debut for the Charlotte Hornets. The third overall pick in the NBA draft had zero points, missing all five of his shot attempts. Three of those attempts were from beyond the three-point line. He had three assists, one rebound, two steals, and three turnovers in just under 16 minutes of playing time.
After the game, which the Hornets lost to the Cleveland Cavaliers by a score of 121-114, Ball's teammates told him not to get down on himself.
"I told him just to forget this one,"
