Trustco Bank Corp NY is signaling continued interest in a rival thrift that rejected its unsolicited takeover bid last year.

Without making a new offer, Trustco is asking shareholders of Albank Financial Corp. to approve a resolution directing the Albany-based company's board to look for a buyer. Acting as a shareholder owning 3.9% of Albank's stock, Trustco asked that its resolution be included with proxy material for Albank's May 21 annual meeting. The proxy statement was distributed Monday.
