LIVINGSTON COUNTY — The 133rd New York State Assembly candidates recently participated in a joint Q & A on the radio show Livingston Online at WYSL 1040 AM, hosted by Joe Lasky.
Republican candidates Bill Nojay and Richard Burke, who are facing each other in this Thrusday's Republican caucus, cleared the air on a variety of topics. The winner will face the Democrat nominee Randy Weaver who also participated in the Q &A.
The candidates expressed some very clear differences of opinions in the Q & A. Nojay is clearly pro hydrofracking, while Burke stated that he is still cautious about it and wants more information.
Nojay was very vocal that the state is out of control with fiscal spending and needs to be reeled back in.
Candidate Weaver provided ideas for some price cuts to Medicaid that could immediately save taxpayers money.
For voters this Thursday, the Q & A session is available at http://archives.warpradio.com/wysl/files/LOL/20120908.mp3

DANSVILLE – Randy Weaver, of Hornell, officially announced his candidacy as a Democrat for New York State’s 133rd Assembly District Wednesday morning.
With redistricting carving out a large, varied area for the 133rd, Weaver, a current Steuben County Legislator, stressed cohesion in his candidacy speech.
“This is not a Livingston County district, it is not a Steuben County district, nor is it a Monroe County district – this is an assembly district made of many diverse groups and areas,” he said. “It is the job of our elected officials not to separate us into geographical areas, but to represent all residents. Not to represent us as Republicans, Conservatives or Democrats, but to represent us as proud New Yorkers.”
Weaver highlighted high taxes, unemployment and reeling education and Medicaid systems as major challenges he’s prepared to combat if elected but said his service background sets him apart.
“One of the biggest jobs of an assemblyperson is constituent services,” Weaver said. “That’s Albany-talk for customer service. As a Pharmacist for over 30 years, this is one of my greatest assets. I will be there when you need help or someone to guide you to get the assistance you are looking for.”
