LITTLE FALLS- Larry Sharpe, the libertarian candidate for governor, made a stop in Little Falls Sunday. Sharpe addressed his constituents on the street outside of Burke Park on E. Lansing Street.

According to Sharpe’s campaign, he was scheduled to meet and greet people at Burke Park Sunday afternoon, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. After Sharpe showed up, he was asked to politely leave the park since a car show was also taking place.

“We are outside the park because it seems like Republicans are mad at me again,” said Sharpe. “They are mad their candidate is not who they want and I’m actually better for New York State than their own guy is.”

WKTV spoke with the main organizer of the car show, who said he didn’t want the show to become political, therefore he asked him to leave.

Sharpe says he is strictly campaigning in upstate New York because he thinks he can help upstate New Yorkers.

“I'm the only candidate actually talking about helping the counties of New York State,” said Sharpe. “I want to get rid of unfunded mandates, allowing schools to be better, to let teachers teach, allowing the money to not just go to bribes but also to support small business. These are things no one else is talking about this is going to help upstate.”

Sharpe has three more months until election day and challenges his voters to one thing.

“Come out and ask me any question and push me with any comment, and I will give you my honest opinion,” said Sharpe.

Marc Molinaro is the Republican candidate and Cynthia Nixon will be facing Gov. Andrew Cuomo in the Democratic primary election September 13th.
