Oct 29, 2008 — Democratic Senator Darrel Aubertine and Republican David Renzi clashed in their final debate last night in Watertown. Aubertine is trying to protect his Senate seat just eight months after he won it in last winter's special election. Aubertine cites funding for capital projects at SUNY Canton and SUNY Oswego, and delaying the closure of Lee Memorial hospital in Fulton, as his biggest accomplishments during his brief Senate tenure. Aubertine's a former dairy farmer from Cape Vincent. He served three terms as the Assemblyman along the St. Lawrence River in Jefferson and St. Lawrence counties. He told David Sommerstein his biggest priority is to cut down the state's record budget deficit while reducing property taxes.
