Vote for change and real constituent representation

To the Editor:

After watching last week’s debate hosted by the League of Women Voters, it’s clear that Rich Amedure is trying to just follow in the footsteps of retiring Senator George Amedore, and a vote for Rich would be a vote for the same kind of leadership — the kind of leadership that ignored and dismissed me and my fellow constituents when we met with the current senator’s office in 2019 and asked him to take action on climate change.

More ignoring and more dismissals of constituents on important issues such as climate change? No thanks.

Instead, I will be voting early for Michelle Hinchey for State Senate in District 46.

The Amedure campaign has been focussed on partisan attacks, which is not what our district needs. We need someone who is able to be bipartisan, who listens to her constituents, and acts decisively on issues that affect both the district and the state.

I strongly believe Michelle Hinchey is that candidate. Having an upstate voice in the Senate majority will be a huge positive for the region, and will ensure that we are receiving critical funding in a time that our small businesses and farmers are struggling.
