It’s heartening to see a man like Col. Robert Smullen run for state Assembly in Fulton County. It has been a long time since Fulton County has been represented by a local Assembly person.
Col. Smullen is a lifelong resident and 24-year Marine veteran who was advanced to colonel with his duties.
He came home in 2015 and built a new home and solar farm on his property in Gloversville. Now he’s retired and can spend full time in the state Assembly representing the 118th district.
Fulton County, as well as upstate New York, needs a man like this to take our values to Albany and represent us with the status of a full colonel’s voice in Albany.
His opponents and their petty attacks on this man have no merit because he is a resident of Fulton County and has been all of his life.
If his political opponents disagree, they can pursue the issue in court and would surely lose.
