GLOVERSVILLE - Protestors in Gloversville are calling for their mayor to resign. They were holding a demonstration on Tuesday evening.

State police say Dayton King used his position as mayor to gain access to his election opponent's personnel file. They say he then released that information on the air during a debate on a local radio station.
