Election 2010: Carl Paladino, the regular, common guy

October 31, 2010

If anything  the mid-term election put the City of Buffalo on the media map and those working on the campaigns under the radar.  A New York Times reporter interviewed Andrea Harter, 56, a volunteer for  Carl Paladino, Republican nominee governor of  New York  this week.

She shared her  frustrations with social redistribution, unemployment and career politicians. She worked as a manager at an AIDS program bothered by the federal largess like subsidized cellphones through the government  Lifeline program, Viagra paid through Medicaid , and recipients who got undergarments reselling them on the streets.

She told the Times reporter, ” Mr. Paladino was a “regular, common” person — his own man. “I think that’s why we relate to him…”  Our voice will be heard.”  “Us first for a change. Instead of us last.”
