Democrats aren’t telling whole story on Astorino

It’s amazing to listen to the TV ad by the Democratic Committee that warns us here in Western New York about Rob Astorino, the Republican county executive of Westchester County, who is running for governor of New York State.

Since his county has the highest taxes in the state, why would we want him as governor? The taxes in Westchester County are the highest in our state, that’s true. However, anyone who has ever lived there or knows someone who has can speak the truth. The truth is that Westchester’s taxes have “enjoyed” this distinction for the past 50 years or more.

Contrary to what Democrats want us to believe, Astorino has reduced taxes there and has also made other notable savings since he became county executive. Astorino works for the people.
