Candidates Speak at Broome County Democratic Picnic

With elections rapidly approaching candidates are hot on the campaign trail. On Thursday State Comptroller Tom Di Napoli and candidate for Lt. Governor Kathy Hochul spoke at the Broome County Democratic Picnic.
Both of these candidates had plenty to say about what they hope to accomplish if they are elected. 
 
Former Congresswoman Kathy Hochul feels that she has a lot of experience to bring to the democratic ticket. If elected she hopes to bring more businesses to the state, reduce taxes and improve quality of life in New York.

Di Napoli feels that New York is in the best financial condition that it has been in years.  The Comptroller hopes to continue improving the economy during his next term.

Di Napoli said, "Well we are certainly going to continue to monitor, very carefully, our spending and our revenue. Although the budget has been in balance we want to make sure that it stays that way because we're still very vulnerable to changes in our economy."

In addition to monitoring the budget he hopes to expand private sector job. 
These candidates are going to have to wait until November to see if they will put their plans into action.
