Logan Weiss is reporting for Columbia-Greene Media Republican gubernatorial candidate Marcus Molinaro made a campaign stop in Catskill September 8, during the Catskill Food Festival. Molinaro participated in the event, which was billed as a town hall meeting and held at the Robert C. Antonelli Senior Center on Academy Street. Republican Assemblymember Chris Tague and Republican state Sen. George Amedore also participated. Molinaro spoke about his background, family history and resume. He started his political career with a seat on the Tivoli Village Board at the age of 18, followed by his election as mayor of Tivoli and four terms as a member of the Dutchess County Legislature.
