Saratoga Dems show the way for a winning strategy at the ballot box.

While national Democrats didn’t have a lot of good news on election day, “Democrats swept the four open seats [in Saratoga Springs] and elected the state’s first Asian-American city mayor and the city’s first out LGBTQ woman of color to the council.

He analyzes lessons learned in this Times-Union commentary.
