SCHENECTADY -- City Republicans have endorsed Alliance Party founder Roger Hull for mayor along with two City Council candidates, including one on Hull's third-party ticket. The GOP is backing Philip Tiberio, a Republican and local businessman on Hull's ticket, and Heather L. Dukes, a Republican, as they try to end the Democrats' lock on city government. It's the first time Republicans have endorsed an independent candidate for mayor in the city where Democratic enrollment far outnumbers that of Republicans.
