I’m curious why you wrote an article about debates, including ones in which it is known that I am included, without seeking a quote from me. If my name had not come up, I can almost see it, but I am the central issue in this story. Delgado and Faso are arguing over me. Why would you not contact me?
Conservatism in this district, and throughout New York State, used to focus on concerns about the relative values of government economic activity vs. private enterprise, the relative benefits of regulations vs. resources and entrepreneurial freedom to establish and expand productive output, and national security concerns over the militarized closure of overseas markets — not on culture clashes and ethnocentrism. We’re Union here, not Confederacy.
My platform is as different from Delgado’s as Delgado’s is from Faso’s, and it’s not because Faso is to the right, Delgado is in the center, and I’m to the left. I don’t fit neatly on the left-right spectrum.
