Times Editorial Comes on the Heels of Endorsement from Mayor Bloomberg
WHITE PLAINS – State Senate candidate Bob Cohen (R,I,C – 37th District) was today endorsed by the New York Times. In their endorsement, the Times wrote:
"The Republican candidate, Bob Cohen, dares to name United States Senator Jacob Javits — a voice of thoughtful moderation — as his hero. He is challenging Senator Suzi Oppenheimer, a Democrat, who has held the seat for 26 years.
A real estate executive and political newcomer, Mr. Cohen has promised to focus on straightening out the mess of a state budget. He wants to cap state spending with adjustments for inflation, set long-term targets for Medicaid and schools, and eliminate “all V.I.P. tax credits to politically connected insiders.” Mr. Cohen says he wants to work with both sides of the aisle, a revolutionary idea, especially in this polarized year. Senator Oppenheimer is a person of integrity, but she has too little to show for her years in Albany. "
We support Bob Cohen, the Republican, in District 37.
