Senate Candidate Amber Small's Response to Chris Jacobs Entering The Race

BUFFALO, NY- "The very last thing the working families of Erie County need is another candidate for office who embraces the extreme, divisive,  anti-woman agenda espoused by Carl Paladino and Donald Trump.

The voters of this district must choose who is most qualified and most deserving of representing them in Albany. I take this very seriously and plan to run a very robust campaign. I'm running for office because residents of this district deserve the very best possible representation and a true community advocate to represent them. Someone who devotes all of their efforts to being a public servant, not running for office as a hobby. 

I look forward to a robust debate on the issues that matter most to the voters in this district."
