If you live in Chautauqua, Cattaraugus, or Allegany Counties; and are registered to vote, there is a very special election today.
Nancy Bargar is running against State Assemblywoman Cathy Young for the 56th State Senate seat left vacant by the recently deceased, Pat McGee.
Instead of having the election take place on Primary Day in September, Gov. Pataki saw a way to muscle Young into this seat by holding a special election that will cost some municipalities more than what they have budgeted for elections. The candidates had 22 days to campaign. Ms. Young spent it avoiding debates, making squirrly moves by announcing grant funding to municipalities outside her Assembly district, being propped up by Gov. Pataki all over the district, and putting out deceptive radio ads and mailings.
Nancy Bargar is the best choice if you want real change in Albany. Cathy Young is merely a mouthpiece for Gov. Pataki and the GOP. She seems to be incapable of original thought when it comes to statements she makes and the issues she supports. Do you want more of the same in Albany? If so, then vote for Cathy, otherwise, be bold and demand reform and change for the better. Vote for Nancy Bargar today.
This race will be decided by a minority of registered voters. Get out and make a difference. Polls are open until 9pm in Chautauqua County.
