SARATOGA SPRINGS, N.Y. -- The race for the 43rd State Senate district continues. Republican Kathy Marchione and Democrat Robin Andrews faced off in a forum Thursday held by the League of Women Voters at the Saratoga Springs High School.
Voters had the opportunity to come out and talk directly to the candidates in a forum type setting. They touched on a range of issues, including health care, education and the minimum wage.
Both candidates say the economy and creating jobs are their priorities as they look to move forward and help the people of the 43rd District.
"The taxes they are burdened with, the jobs that they need and that's what we need to move forward with and look to do for our constituents, not worry about what happened in the past or that I now get to have the 1,000 rights anyone who's been married or that I get to be by my spouse when they're ill or dying," Andrews said.
Marchione said, "I agree with what Robin has said. Same-sex marriage was something that has happened in the past. The critical issues facing this campaign, are jobs, taxes, over spending. Those are the issues.”
A forum was also held for the 113th State Assembly district Thursday, as
Assemblyman Tony Jordan and Democrat Caroline Woerner sounded off on issues facing their district.
