Michael Vass interviewed Art Garrison, who is running for the 126th seat on the New York State Assembly – currently held by Donna Lupardo (Democrat). The interview took place at the business of Mr. Garrison, Family Hobby and Crafts in Vestal, New York.
The interview delves into the background of Mr. Garrison, his motivation to run for elected office, plans to deal with the State deficit, term limits, reaction to the Health Care Reform, comments on the 9/11 mosque and proposals by Gov.
