Rep. Chris Collins – “So for NY-22 to have their best representation, while people may not like to hear how politics plays out they need a Republican who sits in the majority. Who’s in the room when decisions are being made. Who can step forward, if there is anything relative to the NY-22, that’s of a concern and have the ear of the Speaker of the House, the Majority Leader and all the Committee Chairmen.”
New York 22nd Congressional District
Claudia Tenney has a Jobs Plan, Kim Myers has suggested Government will lead the way. Given the results of the last 7 years in New York State and the nation, it is worthwhile to review where the candidates stand.
Here is a slice of the life of a political commentator trying to have a day off at a local event. It is an example of a community celebrating the deep culture in the region, while at the same time displaying how important and intertwined politics are to the everyday lives of residents. Even if many went without taking advantage of the opportunity to learn about, and potentially shape, how these politics will affect their lives in the future.
With barely 90 days left in the congressional race, voters in the Mohawk Valley and Southern Tier have little time to learn more about Kim Myers besides the fact she is a member of the Democrat Party. Thus far, Myers herself has been resistant to allow the public to gain greater insight.
Perhaps the biggest question is, what conversation about gun control and the 2nd Amendment has America not yet had? If Kim Myers has anew position that has never been addressed before – or a compromise that has not been previously suggested – America is sure to be interested in what that is.
I could be wrong, but then the question remains, why did Dick’s wait 22 years only to act at a time when EVERY business in NYS is leaving or considering doing so?
The ramifications will affect transparency in government, likely lead to new legislation to prevent this from happening again, and potentially several trials – all of which will in some way be connected to Congress in 2017. Who is elected in the NY-22 could well shape the results.
Polls are just a snapshot at a given moment of the views of a group of people at any given moment. Citizen’s United conducted a poll, on June 18, 2016, showing Claudia Tenney at 38%, Steve Wells at 26%, and George Phillips continues to trail with just 11%. Ultimately it is up to voters, not pundits nor negative ads or polls, to decide if those are reasons to take Claudia Tenney, or potentially one of her opponents, to the general election with Democrat Kim Myers in November.
George Phillips won the WSKG 2 man debate. The bad of the debate was far more expansive and detailed. From the first question the lack of Claudia Tenney was felt in the debate. The first question was on gun control and the Orlando shooting.
The exclusive interview, on June 10, 2016, was at the Tenney Campaign Broome County office located at 1115 Upper Front Street in Binghamton, NY.
