A Message from Bob:
In 1788, New York became the 11th state to ratify the United States Constitution. Its people had already won their independence from a tyrannical government that had levied excessive taxes and burdensome regulations upon them. They sought to create a government run by and answerable to the people. Now, 228 years later, our state government has regressed into exactly what our forefather's fought so hard to overcome.
New York is the 2nd highest taxed state in the nation. Onerous regulations and excessive taxation (some disguised as fees) have made living here a financial struggle for many of us. It is no wonder why so many New Yorkers have decided to leave for other states where the cost of living is substantially more affordable.
I am running for State Assembly to restore sensibility and reason within our state government. I will work diligently to streamline governmental processes so residents of New York can once again thrive and grow. Elected officials should be committed to assisting and representing those they serve, not dictating obtrusive rules and unreasonable laws that restrict our freedoms.
I pledge that, when elected, I will work diligently on behalf of all the people within the 138th Assembly district. I am running to represent your interests and concerns in Albany and I will be accessible to each of you.
It is time to restore the image of our once great state. With your support on Election Day, we will take a step closer to returning to the constitutional values this state was founded upon.

Albany: Silencing Your Voice In 3 Easy Steps
Bob is running for a New York State Assembly seat in the 138th District. Below is a map of the district. It contains the towns of Henrietta, Chili, and a small portion of the City of Rochester. Do you notice anything a bit odd with it? Why is the section of the city shaped so oddly and incongruously? Is it shaped like a question mark because it raises so many questions? No, this is called gerrymandering, and it is a way for politicians in Albany to redistrict geographically to give the majority of voting power to a minority number of voters. Effectively, the 138th District was created to take away YOUR voice in Albany AND IT HAS WORKED FOR YEARS. It's time to send a clear message to Albany that you want your voice heard through accurate representation.
What is Gerrymandering?
Watch this YouTube video for a 45 second explanation on how Albany is taking away your voice and your vote!
The ruling party finds a district they want to "rig".
The ruling party segments the district in a way in which the numbers can only work in their favor.
The ruling party makes your vote futile and you become effectively voiceless.
It's time to take back New York
Bob listens to your concerns and will work for you.

Where does each candidate's funding come from?
Bob's campaign is funded by individuals and small business owners that simply want ethical representation back in Albany. This means that Bob does not have any political "favors" to pay back.
Our opponent's campaign filing shows almost 80% of his funds come from special interest groups like PACs and "big money” even though he states he wants to pass legislation to limit the influence of big money by regulating such groups.
Who pays for campaign printing and mailers?
Bob's has printed his own materials using funds from small fundraisers and then delivered them personally to constituents in the 138th District. Bob has also received some assistance from the county committee responsible for his campaign. This assistance providedd for two mailers that went out last month.
Since 2011, our opponent has spent at least $165,000 in PUBLIC FUNDS to send out mailers from his office. In other words, YOU are paying for them.
