A candidate seeking office in the New York State Assembly made a campaign stop in Utica on Friday.

Republican candidate Robert Smullen is a lifelong resident of Fulton County, and he’s a retired Marine Corps. Colonel who also worked as a White House fellow and part of his assignment was to work in the Department of Energy for the U.S. under President George W. Bush. He recently serves as the executive director of the Hudson River Black River Regulating District.

Smullen is running for the 118th Assembly District seat that will soon be vacated by Assemblyman Marc Butler, who has announced his retirement.

Smullen says his campaign platform is focused on lowering taxes and regulation relief.

“One of my main goals campaigning is going to be to go out and actively listen to the people to hear what their problems are and then to figure out what the solutions that will be necessary for the people of the district.”

Also running for the 118th Assembly District seat are Republican candidates Patrick Vincent and Philip Lloyd PAIGE, and Democratic candidate Keith Rubino.

The Republican candidates will face each other in a September primary election.
