Not every Republican is afraid of being seen with Carl Paladino...Monroe County Executive Maggie Brooks is highly regarded in local politics and she was one of 20 elected leaders to meet with Paladino today.
Its not so much about Carl....Its the message...People ARE mad....and New York cannot continue on its present course...
Western New York is the most independent part of the state...Perot drew his best numbers there in 1992 and as I have said Carl's numbers in WNY were through the roof.
Lets here how Paladino fleshes out his message of rage...Ultimately people want some specifics...At the very least, Andrew will have to hear from those who are seldom represented in Albany....and certainly those who are not in the hierarchy of the Working Families Party.
My hope is Paladino articulates the contempt folks have for the way things are run and some real solutions...The electoral deck in this state is stacked against him..But at least the people will have their voice articulated if not heard.
Brooks For Paladino
