Measured, often differing, messages were provided by the five local politicians who came to the chamber’s annual Meet the Candidates membership meeting on October 17th.
Questions were taken on an array of topics from the 40 plus meeting attendees, including a woman’s right to choose, environmental funding, assault weapons and term limits. On the dais to reply were NY State Senator Carl Marcellino and candidate Jim Gaughran; NY State Assemblyman Charles Lavine and candidate Andrew Monteleoni and Congressional candidate Dan DeBono.
One message they could all agree upon: The need for everyone to get out and vote on November 6th.
