The Republican candidate in the race for New York State attorney general made campaign stops in the greater Utica area on Friday.
We caught up with Keith Wofford at The Franklin in Marcy, where he discussed his plan to tackle corruption. Wofford wants an investigation into systemic corruption involving state and local government officials throughout the state.
“What is happening in local agencies and authorities – both in respect to housing, with respect to Medicate fraud, which is something that’s going on across the state – and also, frankly, with respect to the electoral law," Woffard said. "We have problems and pockets throughout the state with the electoral law. And finally, school systems. We have to make sure that the school systems are getting the resources they need.”
Wofford is running against Democrat Letitia James in the Nov. 6 general election. In the most recent Siena College poll, James led the race by double digits.
