r'. i\ Page 6 - The Chronicle-Express, Penn Yan.N.Y., October 31,1990 G u b e r n a torial r a c e on tap Candidatea opposing Democratic incumbent, Gov. Mario Cuomo and hia running- mate Stanley Lundine, who are also running on the Liberal Party line, are Republicans Pierre Rinfret and Geroge Yancey, Jr.; Conservative Party candidates Herbert London of New York and Anthony DePema of Commack; Right to Life candidates Louis Wein of Staten Island and Gertrude Manning of Baldwin; Socialist Workers Party can­ didates Craig Gannon of Brooklyn and Susan Anmuth of Brooklyn; New Alliance Party candidates Lenora Fulani of New York and Ada Vazquez of Brooklyn; and Libertarian Party candidates W. Gary Johnson of New York and Dottie-Lou Brokawof Lake Hill. Gubernatorial candidate Pierre Rinfret of New York said he accepted the challenge to run for governor for “one primary reason: New York State is a disaster.” Chairman and chief executive officer of Rinfret Associates, Inc., an international economics, finan­ cial and political intelligence and trading firm, Rinfret says that he is running for governor, “Because I genuinely believe that I have the ideas, the ability and the guts to do what needs to be done.” Rinfret also is chairman and CEO of Rinfret Holdings, Inc., which consists of two financial services subsidiaries: Rinfret Securities, Inc. and Rinfret Futures, Inc. In their operations, these organizations use the Rinfret Associates expertise in forecasting interest rates and foreign exchange rates. Rinfret’s experience as an economist spans more than three decades, and his financial analyses have been employed by both Republican and Ltemocratic Administrations, he notes. In ad­ dition to providing economic counsel to Presidents Kennedy, Johnson and Nixon, Rinfret ser­ ved as chief economic spokesman for Nixon’s 1972 presidential campaign. In his campaign, Rinfret has proposed a New York Tbx Revolt Plan for the state’s budget. The plan involves “three important stages,” he notes, including: “In the first year, lW l-‘92, we will freeze almost all state spending at the levels of this year, 1990-‘91. This will mean a one-year freeze on the salaries of all state employees. Departmental spend­ ing will also be held at 1990-‘91 levels. The only prc^rams that will increase will be welfare, Medicaid, and capital construction projects,” he said. The second stage involves clos­ ing the remaining “$2.4 billion budget gap (even after the freeze), by using a “seven-point program of selected economies and efficiencies that will not cut ser­ vices but will achieve $1.5 billion in savings,” Rinfret notes, and \from there, we can rely on nor­ mal revenue growth of $900 mil­ lion to close the rest of the budget gap.” Third is Rinfret’s three-year plan for permanent tax reductions in New York. My ultimate goal is to reduce New York’s taxes to within 10 percent of the national average,” he adds, noting that the current rate is 60 percent above the national average. Rinfret also supports the death penalty for convicted murderers and drug kingpins. -I a U e Levels— KEUKA LAKE WA'^R LEVELS RinCret’s running mate, George (Geff) Yancey, Jr. of Sodus, who began working in the cheese business at the age of 12 and run­ ning the family business, Heluva Good Cheese Com^ny, which his family purchased in 1956, in the mid-1970s. He notes that as president and chief executive officer of a company that does business throughout New York and the Eastern United States, “I know how to make tough decisions and I have the courage to cany them out. With the tax­ payers of New York facing a mounting fiscal crisis, we can’t af­ ford anything less,” he adds. In supporting Rinfret’s fiscal proposals, Yancey notes “Pierre Rinfret and I will rdl up our sleeves on day one and apply proven business methods to get New York's fiscal house in order.” Likewise, Yancey supports the death penalty and notes that “We must take back our streets and neighborhoods from the criminals and drug pushers who threaten our safety and poison our youth.” While this is his first run for office, Yancey’s political involve­ ment has included being chairman of the Wayne County Republican Party for eight years (1981-‘89), being a state Republican committeeman, and being the Upstate coordinator for the Bush-Quayle campaign in 1988. He is also active in the com­ munity, serving as the first Private Industry Council chairman for the Finger Lakes area; being board member and former president and campaign chairman for the United Way; and being a board member for the Newark-Wayne Community Hospital. Gov. Mario Cuomo was first elected as New York State’s governor in 1982. He has strongly supported creating more jobs for New Yorkers; taking criminals off the streets; saving lives on New York State roads; creating housing for New York families; increasing State Aid for education; and help­ ing create a clean environment for the state’s future. Cuomo strongly supports the 21st Century En­ vironmental Quality Bond Act on this year’s ballot. Cuomo attended Queens public schools and St. John’s Prep. He was graduated summa cum laude from St. John’s University and later tied for top honors at St. John’s University School of Law. For 17 years, Cuomo taught law while at the same time working full time as a trial lawyer, taking many public advocacy cases. He formally began his career in public service in 1975, being ap­ pointed secretary of state. Cuomo’s running mate, Stan­ ley Lundine of Jamestown, was elected in November 1986 with 65 percent of the vote, the highest percentage vote for the offices in state history. Lundine’s many duties as lieutenant governor include: at­ tending senior staff meetings with the governor, joining the governor in negotiating sessions with legis­ lative leaders, and conferring with the governor to help formulate m^jor policies and strategies. Lundine also serves as presid­ ing officer of the state Senate, in­ volving him directly in the legisla­ tive process and allowing him to help guide the governor’s program bills through the Legislature. He meets re^larly with legislators, state officials and representatives of many groups to discuss pending legislation and state policies. First elected to Congress in 1976, becoming the first Democrat to represent the Southern Tier in the House of Representatives since 1874, Lundine “quickly es­ tablished a reputation as hard­ working and effective advocate for New York interests.” Lundine was the principal sponsor of the Labor-Management Cooperation Act of 1978, the West Valley Nuclear Waste Demonstra­ tion Act of 1980, and the State and Local Government Cost Es­ timate Act of 1981. He also co­ authored the Urban Development Action Grant pro^am, the Small Citizens Community Development Block Grant Program, and the Science and Math Education Act of 1983. While serving on the House Committees on Banking, Finance Urban Affairs, Science and Ibch- nology, and Aging, Lundine at­ tracted national attention for bringing Democrats and Republicans together to find bipartisan solutions to key issues. Lundine’s first elective office was as mayor of his hometown of Jamestown, serving from 1970 to 1976 as the youngest person ever elected mayor of a dty in New York State.
