(BUFFALO, NY) – Buffalo businessman Carl Paladino announced today that
he supports Colin Schmitt for the New York State Assembly. Schmitt, a next
generation reformer from Orange County, announced his campaign for the 99th
Assembly District, pledging to “create a better New York, where all can live, work,
and prosper,” through his solid Republican Conservative leadership.

“We need Colin Schmitt in Albany. He is the type of refreshing leader that will
shake Albany to its core” Paladino said. “Colin is the only candidate in this race
that will stand up to the failed Albany leadership of both parties and work for job
creation, fight for ethics reform, advocate for tax and mandate relief, protect our
2nd Amendment rights, and stand up for the defense of life in New York.”

Our thuggish State government is out of control and forcing itself into every
aspect of our daily lives. The opponents to everyday New Yorkers seem to be
running against Colin. From a Double Dipping incumbent to others with records
that induce a Shelly Silver smile it is evident that we need to send Colin to
Albany, not just another failed creature of Albany.

Colin is a next generation leader with public, private, and reform experience that
will unrelentingly advocate for the shared Republican Conservative values of the
residents of Orange and Rockland Counties and across New York State. “Our
great Empire State is now the “Exodus State” and Colin so rightfully tells those
he campaigns to and very few of our elected leaders in Albany are capable of
reserving the trend,” Paladino said. “We’ve got to send our A-Team to the capital
to do the work of the people, and Colin is definitely the man we need in Albany to
fight for all New Yorkers.”

Paladino ran for Governor of New York in 2010 and racked up the most
remarkable Republican Primary victory in the nation, fueled by record-breaking
voter turnout including sweeping victories in every single town in the 99th District
which consists of nine towns in Orange and one in Rockland County. Paladino
also returned the Conservative Party to “Row C” for the next four years.
