ALBANY, N.Y. -- Just under two months until Election Day and one of the big races is the one for Albany Mayor.
It will be a historic election as the city has not had a new mayor in nearly two decades and it may be the first time a woman is elected to the post.
Kathy Sheehan won the Democratic primary just a few days ago and she will face off with Republican Jesse Calhoun, Green Party candidate Theresa Portelli and Conservative candidate Joseph Sullivan.
Calhoun spoke with Capital Tonight's Nick Reisman and addressed some issues the city faces during this election cycle, including attracting new businesses.
"The mayor can look at the zoning laws and make it easier for small businesses there. It's kind of an antiquated system, very suburban in its zoning. It hasn't been looked at in a while. I think if you make it easier to get turnkey store fronts, where you get in. It can make it easier for small businesses to get there," Calhoun said.
In a predominantly Democratic city, Calhoun says he's working hard to get his face and name out there so people know who he is and what he stands for.
