Ms. Jean Bennett

Auburn Citizen

Auburn, New York 13021

 

To The Editor:

Thank you for your editorial in which you support my legislation (S.3149-Diaz/A.4704-Ball) to ban legislators’ outside income (Our View: Outlawing state legislators outside income a good idea).  In response to your statement that “we haven’t found much for which to praise state Sen. Ruben Diaz, Sr.,” I would like to offer the following comments.

If your only concerns are gay marriage and abortion, then your statement bears some merit.  I oppose gay marriage and I oppose abortion, and I always will.
