Candidate Free Air Time: 2008 David Bonacchi

0 (0 Likes / 0 Dislikes)
My name is Dave Bonacchi and I'm a candidate for the New York State Assembly in the 135th District. I have had the honor and privilege for the past 30 years to serve my community, East Rochester. First, as a police officer then as their Mayor. I was Chairman of the Council of Governments which includes all 29 towns and villages, the Mayor of Rochester, and the County Executive. I was the Chairman of the Steering Committee and Past President of the Mayor's Association. I sat on the 9-1-1 board and have worked for law enforcement for over 30 years. I have gained the necessary experience during that time, which has positioned me well for this election. I am a proven leader that has accepted the responsibility each and every day. In this election, there is a distinct difference between my opponent and me. As Mayor, I worked very hard to bring in many new businesses which in turn created local jobs. I understand the hardships that businesses face. I support a cap on local property taxes because I believe property taxes are growing faster than homeowners' ability to pay and are placing a financial burden on middle class families and seniors. I want to see that state reduce state taxes, which are the highest in the nation which are crippling job growth in the Rochester area. We are now threatened by a status quo that is taxing us into oblivion. I want to make health care more accessible and affordable and invest in workforce retraining for the 21st Century high tech and manufacturing jobs. My opponent in the Democrat and Chronicle stated, and I quote, Albany is in shambles. It's time for a change. I'm running for State Assembly so families who plan their budgets, and seniors who live on fixed incomes, deserve relief and the peace of mind that their taxes will remain stable and more predictable. This election, I believe, you have an opportunity to elect a proven leader that will stand up and fight for what's important for the residents in the 135th Assembly District and for all the residents throughout this great state that we call New York. Thank You.
