A Moment on Strategy
The purpose of this site is not to tear down any of the Democratic candidates, but I do have to take issue with the Capanna campaign today. The other day in the Sub-Standard article on the the race, this was said:
"We are certainly in this race to win," Capanna said. "I want to serve in Congress."
The emphasis is mine, and initially I was willing to pass it off as a quote out of context, or a rookie mistake when dealing with the press. Unfortunately, this was included in the e-blast update:
Paloma continues to earn media coverage, and is quoted in this week's Syracuse Post Standard: "I am in this race to win. I want to serve in Congress." Having heard her say the same since early September, hurray that it is finally in print. A strong message of commitment is now on record with the voting public. Thank you Reporter Peter Lyman.
Emphasis is mine again. I think it is clear that Ms. Capanna needs to reassess why she is running, is it because she wants to serve in Congress or she wants to make a positive change for our area? After she answers that question, she needs to fix her message.
I don't want to use this site to attack any Democratic candidates, but in the end I want a candidate who has the message to take on Jimbo come November. Right now Ms. Capanna's message is all about her and not the people of Central New York.
