A number of issues were covered&nbsp; and there was often congenial discussion between the two.&nbsp; A recurring theme was displeasure with Albany as shown in their response to the state mandated tax cap. Democrat Tim Carpenter works for the Corrections Department and is a Plattsburgh city councillor<br> Wed, 31 Oct 2012 16:20:00 +0000 Pat Bradley 51011 at http://wamc.org Contenders in Northern NY Assembly Race Debate
