Mr. Carl Paladino, successful Buffalo businessman, is looking to win the Republican primary, in part, because he is the only completely pro-life candidate for Governor of New York. His platform is one of practical fiscal reform that will halt New York's tax and spend politics, create jobs and incentivize business, and demand transparency and accountability to the people. For these reasons he was the welcomed guest on Friday, May 21, at the Yonkers Hudson Cliff House home of Mr. & Mrs. Steve Acunto. Mr. Acunto is the Honorable Vice Consul of the Republic of Italy, Chairman of the Italian Academy Foundation, Inc., and founder and president of CINN Group.
Carl Paladino, in addition to his business acumen and his Albany-outsider approach to problems, is refreshingly and staunchly pro-life, defending the inalienable "right to life" of all citizens at every stage of life. He defends as duty the lives of all citizens, from conception to natural death.
The Republican primary race for Governor of New York is also monitoring the busy campaigns of Rick Lazio and Steve Levy. Democrat Andrew Cuomo officially joined the field this weekend, a move that has been expected for some time.
An interesting cross-section of pro-life leaders attended the Yonkers Q&A and luncheon that drew politicians, businessmen and women and community leaders and activists including the Honorable John Spencer, former Mayor of Yonkers and former candidate for U.S. Senate from New York; Joseph J. DioGuardi, former member of the U.S. House of Representatives (and only CPA in Congress) currently running for the U.S. Seante seat of Kirsten Gillibrand.
Also in attendance Elizabeth Costanzo, President of the Westchester Right to Life Party; Barbara Meara, Chairperson of the NYS Right to Life Committee; representatives from Katonah's Montfort Academy; Ralph Lorigo Chairman of the Erie County Conservative Party, Sebastian and Joy Dechiario and Richard Fuerst of the Westchester-Putnam Right to Life Committee; Judith Anderson, co-director of the Hudson Valley Coalition for Life; Sarah Belair and Mary d'Ablemont of Bronxville; representatives from Healthy Respect, a chastity-based sex education program for youth and parents; well-known local political activist, the Honorable Vincenza Restiano, former 12-year President of the Yonkers City Council; Mr. Michael Caputo and Paladino-for-Governor Political Campaign Manager John Haggerty, among others.
