Amedore launches second try for state Senate

Apr 08, 2014 6:54 am
George Amedore launched his campaign for represent New York's 46th Senate District, Mon., Apr. 7, in Catskill. Jordan Carleo-Evangelist is reporting at Capitol Confidential the Rotterdam Republican accused Sen. Cecilia Tkaczyk (KAT-chik) of siding with New York City interests over the needs of her constituents. Amedore lost to Tkaczyk by 18 votes in 2012. On Monday, he faulted the Duanesburg Democrat for her support of the SAFE Act, the year-old state gun control legislation, specifically. Amedore is a homebuilder by profession. He served more than five years in the state Assembly before the 2012 race. In a statement released Monday, Tkaczyk said her focus is now on the work of the current legislative session, without any direct reference to Amedore or his campaign. The 46th Senate District stretches across all or parts of Greene, Montgomery, Schenectady, Albany and Ulster counties.
