New Randy Kuhl Advertisement

Filed under: November 2006 Election,Randy Kuhl — theruralpatriot @ 10:07 am

Some of us living in this area of NY-29 are at a disadvantage in that we are not in the market that will receive television coverage of this congressional race.

If you cannot access the above video, you can watch it here.



  1. I have seen the ad playing and I live in Olean. I have heard you say that this area is at a disadvantage during this race, but I have seen and heard Randy Kuhl’s ads for the past few weeks. I haven’t heard a peep from Mr. Massa. My guess is he doesn’t care much about this part of the district.

  2. Kuhl’s New Ad

    Randy Kuhl’s new ad is a positive, first-person accounting of federal money spend in the district. It also introduces a new campaign tag line: Accessible, Independent, Effective: Congressman Randy Kuhl. Here it is:

  3. Up in the Rochester suburbs, I haven’t seen either Kuhl’s new (or old) ad, or Massa’s new ad on TV. I think you need to look at their positions on the issues, rather than how much TV they buy, to decide whether they care about your part of the district.

  4. I have satellite TV service and I receive the Buffalo market local stations. I have not seen any of the ads for Mr. Kuhl or Mr. Massa from the Buffalo stations. Perhaps it depends on whether you have cable service and the ad time is being bought to air on specific cable markets.

    I’m just curious as to Mr. Kuhl’s definition of the word “independent”, which he also uses in a radio advertisement that I have heard. Based on his voting record in Congress, the vast majority of his votes are greatly aligned with republican and administration idealology.

  5. To comment #1 jnd. I’m glad that you are able to see these commercials on your local television service. I don’t have cable service; therefore, I don’t see the ads.  However, I note your point and have changed my wording from “Those of us” to “Some of us”.

    As far as Mr. Massa “not caring” about our area, he has held three events in Cattaraugus County in the past eight days (one in Little Valley, two in Allegany – St. Bonaventure and Allegany-Limestone High School) and two in Allegany County (one each on Friday and Saturday). All of the Cattaraugus County events were given advanced press in the Olean Times Herald so that the public would be notified to have the opportunity to attend the event.

    I encourage you to learn about both of these candidates and to go and listen to them when they come to your area. Its not good enough to “write someone off” just because you have not seen a television commerical from them yet. It is up to each of us to cast our votes this November based upon an informed opinion. Go to each of these candidates’ sites and learn of their views on the issues. The links for Mr. Kuhl and Mr. Massa are listed on the right hand side of this page.

  6. This Kuhl-Massa race may end up being much closer than anyone imagines. I think Massa has been working hard in our neck of the woods. Remember, Randy was elected with just fifty-one percent of the vote, losing a substantial part of the district and then to a mid-twenty year old. Will be fun to watch this play out, no matter how it ends up. Thanks for covering it.
