Albury Local Court has heard former Albury mayor Henk van de Ven intends to plead 'not guilty' to one charge of stalking or intimidating brought by then-fellow-candidate Ross Hamilton.
The Albury businessman was charged last month in relation to an incident outside of the election pre-polling site on Smollett Street.
Police, having received a report a man was "allegedly threatened", issued van de Ven with a notice to attend Albury Court on January 17 on the charge.
The 71-year-old did not appear at Albury Local Court on Monday.
