Domenici recieves key conservative endorsement in senate bid


Republican Bob Domenici, candidate to represent the 46th district in the New York State Senate today announced that he has received the Conservative endorsement from the Albany County Conservative Committee.

“I am pleased to have received the endorsement of the Albany County Conservative Party,” Domenici said. “Together, we will bring positive change to state government.”

“It is a pleasure to have a real "Conservative Candidate who supports Family Values, Good Government and Fiscal responsibility, "said Albany County Conservative Chairman Richard Stack.

Domenici, a service disabled veteran, is the founder and CEO of a small business called Strategic Response Initiatives, LLC, a Homeland Security and Department of Defense based company, which operates out of the US Army Watervliet Arsenal in Albany County.

Pointing to his plan of restoring New York, Domenici said he will focus on placing a cap on property taxes and replenishing and expanding the STAR Program. Domenici also pointed out the importance of job growth and providing incentives to small businesses that stay in Albany County and penalizing those who send jobs off-shore.

According to the Brennan Center for Justice at New York University's School of Law, New York State government is the most dysfunctional in the nation.

“Suggestions made in the Brennan report need to be implemented immediately,” Domenici said. “We are seeing our state government slip further and further into debt. Our leaders cannot agree on passing the budget and the men and women of our state workforce have been threatened with layoffs. I ask you, is this leadership?” “The days of three men in a room are numbered. It’s time to change the way Albany does business for good. It is time to remove career politicians like Neil Breslin from office, so that the interests of the people are on the front burner and not that of the political leaders,” Domenici added.

“Neil Breslin has been a dismal failure for the residents of 46th Senate district; a recipient of Ned Paterson ACLU award and his flip flopping on charter schools show his lack of conviction to any sort of principal,” added Stack. “He was acting Speaker the day the New York State Senate came to a screeching halt and Mr. Breslin showed his total lack of knowledge and was directly involved in the crises which could have been averted.”

“Albany is in serious need of a makeover,” said Domenici. “It begins with removing career politicians like Neil Breslin, who have mismanaged our state’s finances with failed tax and spend polices, that have ultimately bankrupted New York State. The time has to come to return government back into the hands of the people.”

Retired from the US Army after 22 years of active military service as a Lieutenant Colonel, Domenici is a recipient of the Legion of Merit and The New York State Conspicuous Service Cross as well as numerous other awards and decorations. His assignments included Commander, 2nd Weapons of Mass Destruction (Antiterrorism) Civil Support Team, and Homeland Security Liaison Officer for the Division of Military and Naval Affairs.

Domenici resides in South Colonie with his wife Virginia. They have two sons Robert A., who is currently serving as a Sergeant in the 10th Mountain Division, Nicholas a high school student and one daughter Mary, who is studying to be a Register Nurse.
