Here’s Democratic State Senate candidate Rick Dollinger complaining that incumbent Republican Joe Robach won’t agree to appear at debates.
“I am disappointed that my opponent has chosen to avoid debates about the critical issues involved in our future. Those issues include controlling property taxes, creating new jobs, and a fairer, more even-handed school formula for the city of Rochester,” Dollinger says in the video, shot on location in the district last week and posted to YouTube by his campaign.
Robach did discuss a number of those issues when he guest-hosted a radio show, and fielded a lengthy (and friendly) phone call from David Paterson. Fred Dicker says that appearance is all the buzz in Albany today. [second item]
