A pair of debates with local Assembly candidates to be aired tonight on WPBS showed the dichotomy all pols face as they call for cutting the fat in state spending but want no reduction in payroll in NNY.
Fact is once in office there is little a lawmaker can do to "cut taxes", or "create jobs". Nonetheless its good to see the candidates in one place in front of a camera.
Assembly candidate Dave Forsythe is on the HOTLINE today. I am anxious to hear more of his ideas. His opponent Addie Russell appears on Tuesday.
The 122nd candidates have so far avoided the Wealtha Avenue hot seat, and the state senate and Congressional candidates want none of that action as well.
