Cortland forum draws Assembly candidates
Candidates from the 125th and 126th Assembly districts met Saturday morning in a forum sponsored by county agencies to share their views on issues, including reproductive health, education and the environment.
Held at the Elks Lodge on Groton Avenue, residents were able to become more informed on candidates’ views on abortion, fracking and Common Core, specifically.
Common Core, a national program implemented by the state, creates a standard curriculum for schools across the county.
The candidates running for the 125th Assembly District are incumbent Barbara Lifton, a Democrat, and her Republican opponent, Herbert Masser Jr. Both are from Ithaca.
