Herkimer County legislator unhappy opponent won't debate

HERKIMER — A Herkimer County legislator recently expressed disappointment and frustration with his opponent declining an invitation to participate in a radio forum.
Mohawk resident Martin Luppino, running on the Republican line against Legislator Gary Hartman, D-Herkimer, declined to go on “First News with Keeler in the Morning,” a WIBX (950 AM) radio show, which aired Friday.
Hartman said in a news release that he had looked forward to debating with Luppino.
“Sadly, my opponent is depriving voters of this opportunity by his refusal to participate,” he said.“His silence is deafening.”
Luppino said he had to work and was too busy the day of the radio forum. He said there was no particular reason why he chose not to.
“I just didn’t feel the need for a debate,” he said.“I know the issues at hand.”
Hartman pledged to continue knocking on doors, attending community events and other grassroots efforts to reach out to voters before the Tuesday, Nov. 5, election.
While Hartman expressed on the radio show he hoped to debate Luppino in the future, Luppino said he doesn’t envision a debate. He added, however, that he would be going on radio station WUTQ (100.7 FM) in the near future to discuss the issues.
Luppino and Hartman are running for county legislator in District 1, which includes the town of Herkimer districts 5 and 8 and German Flatts district 2 — which is part of Mohawk.

Hartman might be a drunk but I would pick a drunk any day before I voted for Luppino. Just what he needs. More power to feed his ego. No way. We have a cop on the village board and you can see how beneficial that has been.

A cop on the village board? Tony hasn't done ANYTHING to help the Police department. He's helped the board cut two of their men however. Does the general WORKING public know that the board is putting public safety in danger and has already cut two positions from the police? All while the fire department has extra guys getting paid to work while one firefighter was wrongly suspended WITH pay AND NEVER charged with anything. However he's finally back to work and the replacements are still working also. This village board is a joke no doubt, but get the facts straight. Tony nor any other board member has done ANYTHING to help or support the police!!!

Are you kidding me do you honestly think Tony is going to lift a finger for a police force that treated him like crap??? Good for Tony stick it up Marty's ass BUT please get his damn sign off your lawn makes you look foolish.

Treated him like crap? Hahaha from what I hear they all had to carry his dead weight. He brought all his trouble on by himself but was too ignorant to admit when he was wrong. Ask Ron Petrie in frankfort, i hear Tony no longer works there for the same reasons.

Bfd...Debating someone who is dumb enough to vote against the Arm's is a waist of time.
Hartman is dumb, Marty ain't that dumb.

"Marty ain't that dumb."
I'm not even sure where to begin.
