The 2018 mid-term election, and local NY elections, are heating up early this season (unlike the weather). But already there are serious facts being denied the public, and important questions are going unanswered. From across the country, in Congress and in City Council, details that will affect your life are going unspoken - which never bodes well for the public. Listen, comment, like and share.

** Correction - In the podcast it was misstated that 179 Democrats and 6 Republicans voted against H.J. Res. 2 - the correct numbers (as provided by Govtrack) are 178 Democrats and 6 Republicans.  **

We went on location for an exclusive interview, the first for the Libertarian candidate Shawn Szymanski, who is running for the NYS Assembly District 123 versus incumbent Democrat Assemblywoman Donna Lupardo. The interview was at Strange Brew, located in Downtown Binghamton, on April 15th. We have requested an interview with Assemblywoman Lupardo as well.
