Castaldi to Carlucci: Stop politicizing the hurricane!

Janis Castaldi calls on incumbent David Carlucci to stop politicizing the natural disaster and instead to champion real solutions.

Says incumbent can't wait to offer more bad solutions

OSSINING, NY -- Janis Castaldi, candidate for State Senate in New York's 38th District, blasted opponent David Carlucci today for continuing his "disastrous and immature" record of supporting unfunded mandates. Castaldi's criticism comes on the heels of Carlucci's proposing a bill requiring gas stations to purchase 72-hour electrical generators.

"True to form, my opponent has released his plan to ease congestion at the pump: more unfunded mandates," charged Castaldi. "Even before much of our community's electricity has been turned back on, Mr. Carlucci is politicizing a natural disaster to grow Albany's regulatory regime. My opponent is a bureaucrat, I'm a businesswoman. New York is the least business friendly state in the country. We don't need more job-killing regulation, we need to make it easier for our businesses to grow jobs here in New York."

As a Republican voter I was imnpressed with Senator Carlucci at least sending emails and updating his constituents on the storm and any possible progress in getting the power back on. Thats alot more than O&R did or will ever do. I think the bill requiring the gas stations to have a back up generator is a no brainer and a long time coming. Didn't anyone forsee this hapening? I did but, I am not a politician nor a gas station owner. At least Carlucci is doing SOMETHING!

I have another suggestion that I emailed to the Senator a few days back. Why not suggest a bill that would require O&R to pay their customers a certain inconvenience fee- $100 to $1,000 per day after the first full day without power. That would inspire O&R to get this done fast the next time. Last year I spent 5 days in the dark. Their web site is non informative. I called this year on the phone and after 15 minutes of trying to get a human being on the phone all I got was the bland and uncaring voice of an operator saying "10-14 days from the storm is all I can tell you" Possibly they could say where do you live? Lets see where trucks are in relation to your residence sir. Nothing they could have cared less and I hope there are bills put in place to hammer this greedy entity called O&R.

This time tomorrow every one of these politicians will forget about us.
