Don Barber for State Senate NY State District 51 Senator in NY www.barberforsenate.com
Primary Election Date: 2008-09-18 General Election Date: 2008-11-04
Who am I?
I am a small business owner, farmer, and Town Supervisor. I am involved with alternative energy, environmental protection, and inter-municipal cooperation projects. In addition I am Chair of the Tompkins County Council of Governments, Secretary of the Board of Governors for NYMIR (NY Municipal Insurance Reciprocal), and I serve on the Board of Directors for both the Community Foundation of Tompkins County and Tompkins County Area Development.
Why am I running?
I believe it is time to end partisan gridlock and bring democracy back to state government. I am running because I have the leadership needed to accomplish things that are important to us: protecting our environment with strong responses to global warming; creating affordable, universally available health care; beginning the new advanced economy of the 21 st century right here in upstate NY; supporting education of our new leaders while teaching them skills needed for the next economy; and controlling spending while shifting the tax burden away from Property tax. These issues are important to us, but more importantly to our children.
