The Kathy Hochul victory tour has started.
Hochul, a Democrat, pulled a major upset in defeating Republican Jane Corwin for the 26th Congressional District seat in a heavily Republican area.
Hochul visited a diner in Greece yesterday to thank supporters.
Hochul’s stunning win has left Western New York Republican’s to ask…what went wrong?
Assemblyman Steve Hawley of Batavia, an early supporter of Jane Corwin, said the negative campaign directed by party consultants, seemed to backfire
"I hope this shows that negative campaigning, right out of the box, is not the way to run a campaign. You should talk about who you are, what you stand for and talk about representing peoples' interests," Hawley said.
Hochul told supporters in Greece she plans to push for imposing higher taxes of people who make over $500,000 a year to help the budget crunch.
The healing begins today in Bergen.
Family and friends of Eric Wall bid a somber good-bye yesterday to the 16-yedar-olld killed last week in a train accident.
Eric Wall’s brother, Kevin, eulogized his brother as an “unstoppable, unconquerable spirit.” Counselors remain at Byron-Bergen school today to help students and staff cope with the loss.
