Faso Supports Local Biker’s

Recovery After Accident

Looking to garner local support on the campaign trail across the NY-19 congressional district, congressman John Faso stopped in Oneonta this afternoon to enjoy a local fish-fry dinner put on by the Legion Riders motorcycle club at the Vets Club in Oneonta earlier this evening. The dinner was held to raise money for Ed Telfer, a local biker who was severely injured in a motorcycle accident on Aug. 7. Faso made a donation to the Telfer family to show his support. Pictured, Faso is seen talking with WWII and Korean War veteran Fred Hickein of Oneonta. (Parker Fish/AllOTSEGO.com)

Cooperstown Debate Lets Candidates Ask The Questions

Cooperstown Debate Lets

Candidates Ask Questions

All seven candidates vying for the Democratic nomination in the 19th Congressional District gathered in Cooperstown tonight for a debate, which was formatted to allow each candidate to ask one question that the other candidates had to answer. The format allowed candidates to showcase their strengths, while also allowing the audience to view the candidates under a more critical light, according to organizer Richard Sternberg. The debate, held in the Sterling Auditorium at Cooperstown Central School, brought Democrats from across the county to hear from all of the candidates. The Democratic primary election will be held on June 26 to determine who will go toe-to-toe with Faso in the general election to be held on Nov. 6.  The 300-seat auditorium was almost filled.
