KATZ REFUSES DEBATE WITH GRISTINA
“A little more than two weeks before the Primary, Steve Katz still refuses to participate in a debate with me” states Dario Gristina
Gristina’s campaign manager, Lauren Gruppuso, states that he’s been invited by the Putnam County Chamber of Commerce to participate in a debate, but continues to find excuses. “I can only surmise that he’s afraid” says Gruppuso. She adds, “I feel that the slanderous tactics he has tried in order to diminish Dario’s character, have fallen on deaf ears, hence he’s afraid to face real issues that face our state.”
“One of the issues I was curious about is why Dr. Katz voted NAY on bill # 6130 which is a bill that was put in front of him regarding “discrimination in wage differentials between women and men and between minorities and non-minorities in the same jobs and in jobs that are dissimilar but that require equivalent composites of skill, effort, responsibility and working conditions- despite federal and state laws banning discrimination in employment and pay in both the private and public sector “ says Gristina. “There are many other questions on his voting record I’m curious about.” He adds.
Gristina says “September 13th is quickly approaching. The voters will decide”.
A conservative republican, Dario Gristina is running a republican and conservative parties primary in the 94th NYS Assembly District against incumbent Steve Katz.
