Mayor-elect vows to release police records.

Incoming city Mayor Ron Kim promises greater transparency on police accusations of misconduct, according to the Times-Union, says he will terminate the current city attorneys to get it. The action comes amid a filing of an Article 78 by former executive editor of the Saratogian and Troy Record Barbara Lombardo, who since August 2020 has sought copies of excessive use of force complaints. But the request has been blocked by City Hall’s legal department for 16 months.
