WAMPSVILLE – On the steps of the Madison County Courthouse here this morning, Assemblyman John Salka, R-121, announced his introduction of Bill A11067, which he said, if approved, would repeal the Democratic majority’s controversial bail reforms of 2019.
Salka said he plans to hold similar press conferences around the state to publicize his measure, including one next week in Otsego County, which he represents.
At his side was Peter Oberacker, Schenevus, the Republican seeking to succeed state Sen. Jim Seward, R-Milford, who declared, “At this time, this bill does not have a Senate sponsor. Come Jan. 1, if I am elected, I can tell you that will change immediately.”
HAMILTON – Corey Mosher, candidate for 121st Assembly District, which includes Oneonta and Cooperstown, raised triple the amount of his opponent leading up to next Tuesday’s Democratic primary, his campaign announced.
He characterized the donations as representing “enthusiastic grassroots donations,” but his opponent, Dan Buttermann, Oneonta, called that “misleading,” noting much of the money came from family members to pay a professional staff.
This Tuesday, June 16, the final filing date, Mosher’s campaign team announced he had raised $24,602, more than triple his opponent Dan Buttermann’s $8,812.
