(Binghamton, NY) Broome County Chair Bijoy Datta, Tioga County Chair Don Leonard, Delaware County Chair Maria Kelso, and Chenango County Vice-Chair Lou Callea met today to officially nominate Fred Akshar for the Republican line in the 52nd Senate District Election. The Election will be held on November 3rd.
Broome Republican Chair Bijoy Datta said, “After following a thoughtful and deliberative process in which the Chairs discussed and interviewed a number of possible candidates, it was clearn that Fred Akshar was the best choice. His fifteen year career of public service, fighting crime, working hard for local families, and helping the Crime Victims Assistance Center gives him a unique perspective on the problems facing our community.”
Tioga County Chair Don Leonard said, “Fred has already visited dozens of Tioga County businesses and residents to hear what he can do to help them create more jobs. He understands that New York State government needs to get out of the way of private business so that they can expand and create jobs.”
Delaware County Chair Maria Kelso said, “Fred’s energy and enthusiasm will let him work hard to meet every voter in the District and earn their vote between now and Election Day.”
Chenango County Vice-Chair Lou Callea said, “Fred will bring a unique perspective to Senate. He is not a career politician. Additionally, it is particularly important to Chenango County residents that Fred is one of us having been raised in Afton and previously having been a Chenango County Deputy Sheriff."
Akshar has also earned the Conservative and Independence Parties’ nominations. Voters can vote for Fred on the Republican, Conservative and Independence lines on November 3rd.
