On primary day Thursday September 13th I will be supporting Marianne Buttenschon, Democratic candidate for 119th Assembly District. The most important reason for my decision to support Marianne is her being a lifetime registered Democrat, unlike her opponent who changed his party affiliation within the past few years. Marianne, who currently serves as dean of The Institute for Emergency Preparedness and Public Service at Mohawk Valley Community College, is a guiding force in both police and fire academies.
Marianne will strive to continue moving the 119th Assembly District forward, by the implementation of economic development, and providing good jobs. While increasing the academic standards in our local schools, Marianne will seek to make the teaching environment safer for both students and faculty. She will make our communities and schools safer, by providing our first responders, including law enforcement and fire departments, with the necessary resources to fulfill their duties. As voters we need to send Marianne, a lifetime Democrat to Albany to work for the betterment of the 119th Assembly District. Make sure you vote for Marianne Buttenschon on primary day Thursday September 13th to ensure good jobs, good schools, and safe communities. Polls open at noon and close at 9 p.m.
