Governor-Elect Spitzer is wasting no time. Change is in the air. “… Mr. Spitzer is taking the unusual step of voluntarily adhering to tougher rules for himself and his administration, and hoping the idea catches on.”

Spitzer said while he could not force the Legislature to go along with his ideas, he will adhere to these limits “to set a tone, to send a message and to set an example.”

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.
