Candidate Free Air Time: 2008 Bill Reilich--Incumbent

0 (0 Likes / 0 Dislikes)
I'm Bill Reilich, your New York State Assemblyman. I'm proud to represent the residents of the 134th Assembly district. The district includes the towns of Greece, Ogden, and Sweden. And I'm seeking your vote for re-election this November. I went to Albany with an agenda for change, not to fit in with the status quo. As your representative, I have carried the agenda on behalf of the families and businesses I represent. Last session, I supported middle-class property tax rebate checks for our families and our seniors, and I voted to secure millions of dollars in state aid for our local schools to assist them in providing a sound education for our children. I also supported legislation which expanded child health plus insurance to include and additional 400,000 children throughout our state, so they would have access to quality healthcare. These are all measures that I know will help support the residents I represent each and every day. My top priority continues to be helping to ease the tremendous tax burdens placed on all of us. As a father of 5, I know how difficult it is to maintain a home and provide for my family. While we have seen some movement in the right direction, there is still much to be done. I will never stop my fight to help relieve the burden of our sky-rocketing property taxes. We must seek relief so our seniors can remain in their homes and our young children Our children, our grand-children can realize the American dream of home-ownership. I'm doing my part. I've voted over 260 times against any new tax increases that came before me in the assembly. Lower our taxes will also help to make New York more business friendly, so we can attract new jobs to Monroe County and retain the good jobs we already have. We have seen some progress in Albany. I was proud to support legislation which actually cut some of our spending in New York. We are far from being fiscally sound. This was a positive first step in the right direction and one I will continue to pursue when I return to Albany. I'm Assemblyman Bill Reilich and I'm asking for your vote on election day so we can continue helping to change New York for the better.
