RESTORE CIVILITY IN POLITICS
I am a lifelong Democrat. My wife is a Republican. I don’t view Republicans as enemies or foes. I view them as fellow Americans and fellow New Yorkers. When I get to Albany, I will work with everyone, regardless of political affiliation, in order to get results for WNY.
I don’t think either party has a monopoly on good ideas. I won’t reject a good idea just because a Republican proposes it. Conversely, I won’t champion a bad idea just because my party supports it. I’ll always support good ideas and good people, regardless of which party those ideas and people are aligned with.
