Newspaper endorses Greenstein and Bushman

The Home News Tribune split its Assembly endorsements in the 14th district today, picking incumbent Democrat Linda Greenstein and Republican Adam Bushman.

The paper focused mainly on the Greenstein’s record on ethics reform, noting that Greenstein teamed up with Republican state Sen. Peter Inverso to get a piece of pay-to-play legislation that she sponsored in the Assembly put up for a vote in the Senate. Bushman, the paper said, espouses similarly strong ideas on ethics reform and “is the most emphatic among the Assembly contenders in the belief that government at all levels can and must rein in spending and taxes.”

“The pair would pack a hefty punch under the Statehouse dome,” said the paper, which has not yet endorsed a state Senate candidate for the district. Newspaper endorses Greenstein and Bushman
