Republican candidate for Governor Mark Molinaro toured the Finger Lakes and Southern Tier Wednesday.
Molinaro was joined by Senator Tom O’Mara, Assemblyman Phil Palmesano, and Assemblyman Chris Friend for a regional small business tour. Before stopping at Miles Wine Cellars in Himrod, Molinaro and the local lawmakers discussed manufacturing issues and workforce development in Horseheads at Bildan Precision Manufacturing.
Earlier in the day, Molinaro met with the owners and wait staff of Nick’s Pub and Grill in Horseheads to discuss the tipped wage credit and other small business issues.
O’Mara is seeking re-election to represent the 58th Senate District for a fifth consecutive term. The 58th District encompasses Chemung, Schuyler, Steuben and Yates counties, and a part of Tompkins County. Friend and Palmesano are running for re-election in the 124th and 132nd Assembly Districts, respectively.
