Schiliro Shines in First Debate for Assembly Seat


Riverhead – Assembly candidate Tom Schiliro won his debate last night against Assemblyman Anthony Palumbo in their race for the 2nd Assembly District seat. “It is evident that Mr. Palumbo and I do not agree on several vital issues that affect the community, with women’s equality being the most essential. It is preposterous that he blames Democrats for holding up the Women’s Equality Bill when he’s the one who voted against it,” stated Schiliro. “I will remain steadfast on supporting all 10 Points of the Women’s Equality Act, ensuring that a woman retains her right to choose.”
