Bisso to run again for Assembly

(Continued)

INMATE EDUCATION

Bisso also said she is against spending money on free college educations for illegal aliens and inmates.

"We may lose yet another prison, a necessary employer and staple for our upstate economy, all the while tens of millions of dollars have been thrown at stimulus programs that have yet to show any provable results, and inmates and illegal aliens are offered a free college education," she said.

"Therefore, as a veteran teacher, a past member of a corrections household and a proud believer in our Constitution (especially the Second Amendment), I have chosen to run for 115th Assembly seat."

Duprey said she has been fighting to keep Chateaugay Correctional Facility, which is slated for closure this year, open and would like to see good rehabilitation programs in prisons, but not free college education.

"I have people coming to me with two degrees looking for jobs, and they can't find work, and they need help," she said.

"We can help inmates who want it by giving them programs and tools that will help them when they get out. 

"That's how you avoid recidivism."
