Vitollo withraws from 46th District Senate race


June 8, 2010 - With petition circulation beginning, Joseph Vitollo, the Conservative Party’s choice for New York State Senate today announced that he is withdrawing from the 46th District Senate race and throwing his support behind Republican candidate Bob Domenici of Colonie.

“Today, I am proud to stand shoulder-to-shoulder with Republican, Bob Domenici and support him in his bid for New York State Senate,” said Vitollo. “Bob Domenici is Conservative in the 46th District Senate race that I encourage all Conservatives across Albany County to support.”

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.

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.

“As a Conservative, I am doing what I feel is in the best interest of the people of Albany County,” said Vitollo. “By withdrawing from the 46th District Senate race and backing Bob Domenici, I feel it gives ordinary taxpayers in Albany County the best possible chance to return our government back into the hands of the people.”

“It is no secret that career politicians like Neil Breslin and his failed tax and spend policies have done harm to Albany County and to New York State,” Vitollo added. “Domenici will bring forth real conservative fiscal values that will help keep residents in their homes in Albany County.”
