There is no question that State Senator Fred Akshar ran a solid campaign. But there is also no clear answer why the Barbara Fiala campaign was so poor in every aspect.
2015 NY elections
We received mailings from both candidates in the 2015 NY 52nd State Senate special election, and reviewed those mailings as compared to their campaign websites. It is not the purpose of this article to take a side in the race. The point is to highlight what the candidates must discuss and the public should learn more about.
Make your own decision, but don’t be fooled that Barbar Fiala is not deeply connected to the same NY political machine that got Sheldon Silver arrested for corruption, in my opinion.
