Peter Rooney pledged to spend 500k to try and take out Assemblyman Kevin Cahill and he is well on his way in keeping that promise. So far he has spent over $284,000 on his campaign, including over 56,000 in advertising, mostly negative lies that attack and misrepresent our Assemblyman's record.
Do not listen to the smears and lies that the Rooney campaign is telling you, they are untrue. Kevin Cahill is a guy that is a public servant in every sense of the word. An Assemblyman that is fully accessible to his constituents, who has fought hard to help seniors with heap, lower taxes, create strong ethics legislation, help kids receive a quality education, and has helped local municipalities with grants and funding, including the restoration of the long dormant Carnagie Library. This project and many others are now coming to fruition because of Assemblyman Cahill's efforts. Kevin Cahill as chair of the NYS's energy committee has made it a priority to work to make NYS a leader in green jobs.
Rooney on the other hand, has no ideas and does not know the issues, he admitted as much in the Daily Freeman when he announced several months ago.
Rooney acknowledges that he is still becoming familiar with many district issues, such as flooding and natural gas drilling in the Catskills, by talking with party leaders in each community.
"I’m little behind on some of those issues, but I’m working on them, constantly catching up," he said

We don't have time for a new inexperienced Assemblyman to go to Albany and play catch up. The 101st needs an experienced leader like Kevin Cahill, not a wanna be cowboy. When I see this guy, I think he is going to pull a pistol out of his leather holster and shoot someone. The guy does not have what it takes to be in the New York state Assembly. Vote Cahill, send a message that THE 101st IS NOT FOR SALE!
