Why Vote For Magnarelli?
Keeping New Yorkers safe during the COVID-19 pandemic. The State must continue to provide assistance to local governments, hospitals, health care providers, and other essential industries/workers as we work to combat the pandemic. The health and safety of New Yorkers must be our top priority.
Rebuilding our economy in the wake of the pandemic. We need to get people back to work. However, it must be done safely and must take into consideration the anxieties and difficulties people are facing as they return to work, things like childcare, mental health needs, housing issues, and much more. People need to be able to go back to work without fear.
Supporting all levels of our education system. We must address the concerns facing our educational systems from early childhood through college. The educational futures of our children are in jeopardy as the system has been completely disrupted by the COVID-19 pandemic. We need to get all our educational institutions up and running again safely, and we must learn from the lessons of the pandemic. We still have major educational gaps in our society. For example, too many New Yorkers still lack access to broadband internet and the necessary technology to facilitate remote learning. The State must work to solve the inequities.
Family Life: Married to wife,Jeanette, has five children and 1 grandchild

Why Vote For Weber?
If elected I will:
- •Repeal the Criminal Justice Bail Reform Act
- •Set term limits for elected officials
- •Single Bill Legislation
- •Infrastructure Problems
- •Safe Neighborhoods
Voters should elect me because I look at things through a different lens because of my Law Enforcement career. I am not a career politician. I have seen people suffering, being victims of crimes in the neighborhoods, and politicians taking advantage of each other because of the party, instead of working together to resolve the problem at hand.
I have learned while being a town councilor and deputy town supervisor in local government to work together for the residents and not blame each other because of party. That is why I am running for the 129th Assembly District of the State of New York.
Incumbent, Bill Magnarelli (D) is seeking his 12th 2-year term in the 129th Assembly District. He was first elected to the seat in the 1998 election.
