Candidate Woerner’s experience in business what state Assembly needs

A vote for Carrie Woerner in the 113th New York state Assembly District will be a vote supporting access to the jobs of the emerging high-tech economy, women’s rights, and our young people’s future.

Carrie has the ideas and the energy to be an extremely effective representative for the people of this district. She is a proven business leader and trustee of the village of Round Lake, bringing openness and common sense to community issues. She is a breath of fresh air.

For too long we have accepted representation by her opponent, who does not believe in equal pay, raising the minimum wage, women’s access to affordable health care, or adequate support for job training and educational opportunities for our young people. He seems mired in the past, unable to shake off the hold of the political apparatus he is beholden to, while the needs of his constituents go unmet.

A vote for Carrie Woerner will change that. Please vote on Nov. 6.

GOP candidates don’t lie — at least not to their mothers

[Rep.] Chris Gibson and Matt Doheny, two Republican candidates for Congress, are both running vote-for-me TV commercials that feature their mothers. Both ladies, who are no doubt covered by Medicare, defend their sons against charges that Republicans are going to take Medicare away from seniors.

Since Republicans plan only on taking Medicare as we know it away from people currently under the age of 55 and replacing it with a voucher program that eventually won’t cover the cost of the monthly premium, neither Gibson nor Doheny has actually lied to his mother, only bamboozled her a little.

Whew, that makes me feel better knowing that their pants are only smoldering rather than actually being on fire.
