Warren Redlich of NEW YORK
NY's Next Governor?
Will Warren Redlich be New York's next Governor? No, I do not think so. But with that said, I believe that he and Howie Hawkins are fighting impressive battles.
Though Warren is on a small, independent line (Libertarian) he is a candidate with an actual plan to cut unnecessary spending significantly, and to bring real and lasting jobs to New York. I am not going to lay out his entire platform in this blog, so I invite you to visit his website (wredlich.com/ny). Warren is a fighter and is not afraid to stand up to bureaucracy, something N.Y. needs. Don't get me wrong, I believe that Carl Paladino will do the same. One thing that I am certain that Warren will accomplish, is giving the Libertarian Party a line in New York State. I was impressed by his interview on the Jim Rieth Show on 570 WSYR in Syracuse.
Warren Redlich is a Husband, a Father, an entrepreneur, and a trustee on the Guilderland Town Board, in Albany County. His plan to cap N.Y. salaries at $100,000.00 per year would eliminate over $2 billion dollars from our annual budget.Yes BILLIONS of dollars would be saved! Ask yourself one question- does the Director of The N.Y. State Public Library System really need to make almost $700,000.00 each year? Did you know that approximately 100,000 N.Y. State employees make well over $100,000.00 per year?
Warren is one of the few candidates for Governor that I have not met,(I must correct that, because tonight I met Warren) but he has contacted me personally. I must say that I have enjoyed conversing with him.
We, in N.Y. State have to revamp our entire set of fiscal practices and policies if we are to survive! Please do your research and vote this November!
AFTER Election Day Aftermath-
Warren did not get the 50,000 votes that he needed to give the Libertarian Party a line in our state. I believe that the baseless attacks against character that painted him as a sexual predator hurt him badly.
Howie Hawkins did however get enough votes to give The Green Party back their line.
It was a pleasure to write about all of the candidates!
