Reed opponents meet in bipartisan forum after Salamanca town meeting
Each candidate had 3 ½ minutes for an opening statement. Afterward they broke up and the audience was free to seek out candidates to ask them questions.
|Candidate||Tax Bill||Health Care|
|Rick Gallant||Hurts the middle class|
|Max Della Pia|
|Karl Warrington||Supports AHC|
|Ian Golden||Tax cuts misspent|
|Tracy Mitrano||Need universal health care|
|Charles Whalen||Tax cuts won’t pay for themselves|
|Dr. Linda Andrei||Health care is her central issue|
Max Della Pia, who didn’t address either taxes or health care, cited his experience.
Tom Reed’s representative also spoke briefly. I didn’t include him in the table because he is not a candidate. He is not mentioned as expressing a position on the Republican tax bill or health care, but Reed’s position on both is well known.
These brief positions were recorded by reporter Rick Miller for the Olean Times Herald. These are the ideas expressed rather than the actual words spoken. More detailed information is available from the candidates.
