Capurso says he would push tourism, serve the ‘common good’ if elected county legislator

Posted 26 October 2017 at 7:59 am


I am Al Capurso and I am the endorsed Democratic candidate for Orleans County Legislator at-large. If you live anywhere in Orleans County, I would greatly appreciate your vote on Tuesday, November 7.

I am a life-long resident and property owner. My service to the people of Orleans County spans several decades in several county agencies. I am the first former county employee to run for the legislature. I will bring a much needed pro-labor perspective. When we attract and keep quality County employees, everybody benefits.

As a member of SPOC (Stop Polluting Orleans County) I am opposed to any new landfills. I also stand with those opposed to the proposed stone quarry in Shelby next to the National Wildlife Refuge. As a hunter and gun owner, I will work to preserve wildlife habitat and enhance hunting opportunities through conservation easements.

I will use my 25 years experience running a fishing/tourism business to work toward making Orleans County the tourism destination it should be. Visitors from all over the region are beginning to seek us out.

My work in historic preservation has taught me how to strive for the recognition our historic gems deserve on the state and federal level. Our increase in historic markers tells the public we have many special places here.

I look forward to serving for the common good.
