Buttenschon, as majority member in Assembly, helps district


Politics is best defined as who gets what, when and how. That’s especially true in Albany. In the Assembly, Democrats outnumber Republicans by more than two-to-one. The same holds true in the Senate. So, given the reality of Albany politics, guess who gets.

I’ve been a Republican all my life. I know how things get done. That’s why I’m voting to re-elect Marianne Buttenschon to the Assembly. Marianne is the only member of the Assembly’s majority between Schenectady and Syracuse. For that crystal-clear reason alone, nobody is better positioned to protect the Mohawk Valley.

As COVID-19 threatens state and local budgets, think of our future. And, when you think of our future, remember Cree, the Griffins Business and Technology Park, and Harbor Point.

Who do you want defending these projects, a proven member of the party in power or an untested freshman in the powerless minority?

And please consider Marianne Buttenschon the person. Marianne works with everyone, and judges no one. She never misses a vote; her work ethic reflects New York’s heartland. And as diverse as the 119th District may be, no candidate exemplifies the strength of our people more than Marianne Buttenschon.

— Marty Herthum, Whitesboro
