Saland Challenger DiCarlo Goes After His SSM Payoff

 

The Midhudson News:

Republican Neil DiCarlo of the Town of Southeast Wednesday filed some 2,200 petitions signatures with the State Board of Elections to run in a GOP primary election against long-time incumbent State Senator Stephen Saland of Poughkeepsie.

DiCarlo needed 1,000 signatures and he will appear on the September primary ballot unless his petitions are challenged and a sufficient number of signatures are ruled invalid.

After campaign staff filed the petitions in Albany, DiCarlo said he is challenging Saland because he has been “rubber stamping job-killing progressive laws out of Albany which are ruining New York State.”

DiCarlo said Saland has met several times with New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg in the last two years “to write laws benefiting New York City at our expense.” He said after he voted to legalize same-sex marriage, Saland received over $450,000 “from a Bloomberg led cabal from New York City.”
