There is an article in The Salamanca Press this week hi-lighting candidates Charles Couture and Charles Hebdon, both of West Valley, and their positions on issues for their upcoming race next week. Its worth a read if you are unsure of their views.
Mr. Couture was appointed to the position after Gerard “Jess” Fitzpatrick passed away earlier this year. He is running on the Republican, Conservative and Independence Party lines. Mr. Hebdon is running on the Democratic and Working Families Party lines, and has prior experience in the Legislature from 1984 to 1988.
The candidates shared their views on the topics of encouraging young people to stay in the Southern Tier, the impact of the Seneca Allegany Casino, the challenges facing farmers and how to help them, budget and county priorities, and community involvement.
If you are a voter in this district, please take a minute and review the article before you cast your vote next Tuesday.
