Don Miller on the Campbell Conversations

In his first term in the State Assembly, Republican Don Miller has been an outspoken and sometimes controversial crusader against taxes and spending in Albany, to the point of voting against his own party leadership.

He’s running for re-election in the 127th district against Democrat Al Stirpe, in a rematch of their 2010 race.  Miller has supplied a clear and strong voice, but has he been effective?

He engages that question in this edition of the Campbell Conversations, and also discusses his approach to constituency service, as well as issues like hydrofracking and the financial challenges faced by the City of Syracuse.
