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.

ONEONTA – Dan Buttermann made it official today:  The Oneonta Democrat plans to challenge Assemblyman John Salka, R-Brookfield, for the 121st Assembly District seat, although he first may face a Democratic primary next June.

The 121st includes the bulk of Otsego County, including Oneonta and Cooperstown, all of Madison County and part of Oneida.  The 2020 election will be Nov. 3.

“I am deeply concerned about the future of our district, state and country,” Buttermann said in a press release.  “I fear that failure to invest in the future of our economy today means that our next generation of Upstate New Yorkers will find it harder and harder to stay.”
