It’s time to dial down the tone of the gubernatorial campaigns, said outgoing Sen. George Winner, R-Elmira.
Winner, who attended the Business Council’s meeting at the Sagamore, said both Democrat Andrew Cuomo and Republican Carl Paladino should take more policy and how to fix New York.
“I mean, that’s one of the reasons why I’m no longer running,” Winner said. “This atmosphere has gotten so nasty. I think the voters are pretty much fed up with it. I think the voters really want to see some real solutions particularly in these economic times with people hurting. I’m very disappointed by the tone of the campaigns and the top of the ticket in particular. They both feed on each other. There really isn’t any discussion on the merits of the real needs of the state of New York.”
