Schumer Endorses Carlucci for Re-Election

Senator notes Carlucci's support of property tax relief


U.S. Senator Charles Schumer (D-NY) endorsed State Senator David Carlucci (D-Rockland/Orange) on Monday for his re-election bid to the New York State Senate. Schumer cited Carlucci's support of property tax relief and work to restore fiscal accountability in Albany.

"Senator Carlucci has always put middle-class families first and has a strong record of getting things done,” said Schumer. “Hudson Valley residents know they have a fighter in Albany who is a real leader on the issues that matter to working families and seniors."

As the Co-Chair of the Administrative Regulations Review Commission (ARRC), Senator Carlucci sponsored legislation intended to streamline government, reduce bureaucracy, and improve the business and economic climate in New York State.  He has also worked to pass the state’s first-ever property tax cap, pass two on-time consecutive balanced budgets without raising taxes, and implement a progressive income tax code for middle-class New Yorkers.

Carlucci thanked Schumer for his support and said he looks forward to continuing to work during his second State Senate term with New York's senior U.S. Senator.

“Chuck is a national leader who shares my values of fighting for the middle class and building the economy from the ground up," said Carlucci. 

Carlucci represents the 38th State Senate District, which has been reconfigured to include the Towns of Clarkstown, Ramapo, and Orangetown in Rockland County, and the Town of Ossining in Westchester County.

If Schumer endorses him that's reason enough not to vote for him.

I've always liked David Carlucci. But as Eileen said, if Chuck Schumer is in his corner, and he's HAPPY about that, it's time to rethink...

Carlucci is great at campaigning. The problem is that a person who's entire life experience amounts to campaigning for highly-paid elective offices and then just floating along while living in his parents' house is not the best representative of the people. He's voted for bills he never read, given an INTERNATIONALLY lampooned speech on making the onion the state vegetable of New York (during which he actually changed his own mind), and signed on to put a cap on property taxes while doing nothing about mandate relief (which causes a huge chunk of the need for property taxes). God help us if he ever manages to shake enough hands to get to any higher of an office than he currently occupies - he relies on the "I met him once, he seemed nice" crowd to maintain his income.
