“Once again, sadly but predictably, while our campaign has chosen the high road, our opponent has taken the low road.

“We did not wish to disenfranchise Republican voters any further than had already been done by those supporting Mr. Murphy, and therefore we chose to face him in a fair primary without challenging the signatures on his Republican petitions.  My opponent has nevertheless chosen to challenge our Republican voter signatures, in the hopes of throwing us off the ballot and out of the race before a single vote is cast.

“This has only added to his growing list of cheap campaign tactics, including the use of false, misleading robo-calls and anonymous mail put out by the Murphy camp and his supporters.  Perhaps our Republican Party leaders should realize what our voters have known all along:  that ‘we have met the enemy, and he is us.’  Until my opponent and his mentors, the party bosses in Albany, stop taking cheap shots at fellow Republicans, we will continue to lose races, and we will deserve to do so.”

45 years ago today, as a young soldier recently returned from Vietnam, I watched transfixed in front of the TV as Neil Armstrong, followed by Buzz Aldrin, became the first men to walk on the Moon. They, along with Michael Collins, pilot of the command module, became American heroes that day. As I reflected on this some four decades later, I was reminded that today at the White House, in a quiet ceremony,  Staff Sergeant Ryan M. Pitts was awarded the Congressional Medal of Honor by the President of the United States, for “Gallantry and Intrepidity, Above and Beyond the Call of Duty” for his actions in Afghanistan. He too became an American hero today.

As I look back over the four decades from then till now, I realized that there is one constant:  the courage of the men and women of our military is still alive and well, and continues to be one reason why we enjoy the blessings of freedom in the greatest Nation in the world.  Let us pause and reflect on these men and their courage and remember all those who serve.  May God Bless them and God Bless America.

The following is a statement from former Assemblyman Bob Castelli regarding the petitioning process and the transition into the main phase of the Republican primary.

memday-cops“Well, all the petitions are in, and thanks to the outstanding help from our volunteers, we submitted more than enough to secure a position on the ballot for the Republican primary on September 9th.

“While it is a typical political tactic to try and knock the other candidate off the ballot by challenging the signatures collected, we’ve already seen enough attempts to disenfranchise our Republican voters in this primary, and I will not make myself a willing party to it.  Therefore, I have elected not to object to any of the signatures collected by my opponent, so as not to rob any voter of a choice between candidates in a free and fair election.  I hope my opponent will do the same, in the spirit of fair play and honest debate.”
