Get the Dems out of the state and the country. They have had their run and the screwed up the country.

Out of everybody running I think Kennedy is the best choice. We need to get all these Albany incumbents out of office, they clearly have no idea what they're doing. Besides, I've been reading about Kennedy and he seems like the kind of guy who rolls up his sleeves.

Kennedy was one of the people who pushed the below legislation through. It discriminates against my business by stating that I cannot bid on projects (that are paid for with my tax dollars) unless I have an apprenticeship program. I think what that means is Kennedy is a whore for the unions because they are the only ones with apprenticeship programs. Fortunately, Collins was able to circumvent the requirement by using the legislature's own laziness against them. I am not necessarily behind Quinn 100% but I am 100% against anyone who discriminates against me, my business and my employees. I would not mind so much if they didn't want my tax dollars.

Read about Kennedy...

"Kennedy supported Legislator Lynn M. Marinelli, D-Town of Tonawanda, for chairwoman in 2006 and emerged as chairman of the Economic Development Committee, through which many public works projects must pass. From that perch, he championed a new county law to require bidders on county projects to offer apprentice programs."

We need new blood in Albany. Jack Quinn has had 6 years to make a difference.

Because he is clearly the best candidate and we need change in Albany.

With KENNEDY in there , the UNIONS are going to have a field day screwing the indipendent man that has his own business . No doubt the unions backed up his money to run. He is owned by the unions.

I am tired of politicans running on their father's names. Jack Quinn is not his father, he is an Albany insider that hasn't made a difference as an Assemblymember. How would this change if we made his a Senator?

Tim Kennedy has experience working with both sides of the aisle to pass legislation to help Erie County citizens. He also has the passion and drive to stand up to the guys from NYC that are calling the shots. And Tim came to my door to ask for my vote. He has knocked on 15,000 doors. That is the type of hard work I want to see in government!

Time to get rid of that scum bag Jack Quinn. He's never held a private job in his life. His father - a thoroughly unqualified college president - is another slime ball who makes his living on the taxpayer dime. Jack Quinn is a welfare queen. Wise up Hamburg. Axe Jack this Tuesday.

Kennedy want's to "change Albany"? Well what has he done to CHANGE ERIE COUNTY? Absolutely NOTHING.

Turncoat Tim Kennedy didn't knock on MY door because if he did I would have slammed it in his face. Turncoat Timmy backed Republican joke-of-a-sheriff Tim Howard against a quailified Capt. John Glascott in the last election. Is that what you mean by reaching across the aisle Gretchen ? Tim Howard who has cost taxpayerd millions with his shoddy jail management get's Kennedy's support why? Because of the good job he's done? I hope not. Probably because all of the jobs he's given to Timmy's South Buffalo buddies. At any rate, that shows me what kind of "change" Tim Kennedy is for : either none or the kind that benefits himself. Quinn is no prize either, but I'll vote him over turncoat Timmy any day of the week. Funny that now he pushes downsizing when he thinks he's moving on! A classic opportunist.

If you vote for Quinn get the f uck out of the Democratic party because you are no Democrat. Quinn is a scumbag and since day one his career has been funded by his father's Republican Washington lobbyist buddies.

Is Timmy a democrat after supporting republican Tim Howard? Should he not "get the f uck out" too?

Quinn is no picnic, but Turncoat Timmy is a self serving doughboy.

@ Turncoat You'll vote against Democrat because he supported a Republican, but you have no problem voting for a Republican. You're not a Democrat. You're full of sh it.
