“I’d never fault Bill Owens for being worth more than a million dollars,” Doheny said.
“His law firm was willing to pay him that money. That’s America. My opponent, however, vilifies success. He wants to pit people against each other and breed contempt for people like me who worked hard to make it on their own.”
DEBATE OCT. 16
Owens was leading Doheny by 13 points in a poll put out by Siena College earlier this month on the 21st District race.
The two engaged in a debate in Glens Falls last week along with Green Party candidate Donald Hassig, but no knockout punches were thrown.
The next debate is scheduled for Tuesday, Oct. 16, at Valcour Conference Center in Plattsburgh.
