WEEK AHEAD: [UPDATED] Teachout bus to make Monroe County stop


On Thursday, gubernatorial candidate Zephyr Teachout and lieutenant governor candidate Tim Wu will make a campaign stop in Monroe County. They'll appear at 9 a.m. at Village Gate Square, 274 North Goodman Street.

The visit is part of the Teachout-Wu campaign’s Whistleblower Bus Tour. The candidates are making stops across the state and promise to “reveal how Governor [Andrew] Cuomo and his campaign donors have been rigging the system, getting special treatment, and making money at the expense of our schools, hospitals, subways, bridges, lakes, food systems, and small businesses,” says a press release.

Teachout is challenging Cuomo in a Democratic primary, while Wu is challenging Cuomo’s running mate, Kathy Hochul. Teachout has made Cuomo-backed tax cuts for corporations, banks, and wealthy New Yorkers a central theme in her campaign. The tax cuts mean less money for investing in schools, for municipal aid, and for infrastructure, she says.
