ALBANY – The man who wants to be New York State’s next governor says the state capitol is a cesspool of corruption that needs to end.
Westchester County Executive Rob Astorino was in Albany on Friday as part of his statewide tour following his announcement that he will be seeking the Republican party’s nomination for governor. During his stop in the state capitol, Astorino said that things have gotten so bad in Albany that he wouldn’t let his two daughters work in the Capitol.
According to the Times-Union, Astorino said that if elected he would push not only push for term limits in both the Assembly and Senate, but he would also push for other ethics reforms. He also said if he is elected he would work to repeal the SAFE Act and would also finally lift the moratorium on Horizontal Hydrofracking.
If Astorino receives the republican party’s endorsement, he’ll likely square off against incumbent Andrew Cuomo in the November general election.
