Back in the day, when the First Ward was the smallest, least populous ward in the city, no one paid much attention to it. Now that the First Ward comprises most of the south half of the city, it seems things are different. Former Register-Star reporter Roger Hannigan Gilson dedicates a post to the three people vying to represent the First Ward on his blog, The Other Hudson Valley: "Who Will Run the First Ward?" The choice of verb in the title is curious. As an alderman representing the First Ward (2006-2009), I never imagined I ran the First Ward.
