Former NYC Mayor Ed Koch wants to come to NNY to campaign against Addie Russell......Russell opponent Dave Forsythe says he is a fan of Koch.
Koch contacted the GOP candidate yesterday and wants to rally in the 118th against Russell, who refused to sign Koch' New York Uprising pledge for political reform in Albany.
The pledge is about budget and ethical reform, term limits and non partisan redistricting.
"It's admirable a man who is retired and done his time would step forward to try and reform Albany...Hopefully Mayor Koch will be successful," Forsythe said during a visit today to Fort Pearl.
Ms. Russell has said she supports reform in the abstract, but is reluctant to sign specific pledges.
