Marchione Responds to Pay Raise Report

Kathy Marchione, Republican candidate for State Senate, today responded to the New York Post report by Fred Dicker that legislators are secretly planning to raise their own pay.

“This is typical Albany: secret meetings and shady deals that we don’t know about until leaked. If Albany politicians want to give themselves a raise, they should propose the idea publicly prior to the election but I for one don’t believe one is warranted. We still have high unemployment. We still have the highest taxes in the nation. Yet another State Senator was sentenced in federal court this week. Much more needs to be done to help New York’s families before New York’s politicians help themselves,” said Marchione.

“Roy McDonald needs to clearly and publicly promise that he will not go along with this proposal,” said Marchione.
