(Page 5 of 5)

Michaelle Solages and Sean Wright are the two candidates for the new 22nd Assembly District.
Solages: We need fresh eyes and new ideas for these old problems. I am the best candidate for state Assembly because I have both public and private sector experience. I had the wonderful opportunity to volunteer my time at the Nassau County Legislature. As a result, I have public sector experience that will guide me through our state Legislature. Secondly, as a supervisor of Access Services at Hofstra University Library, I have assisted many students in their path through higher education. As an assemblywoman, I would take my private sector experience as an educator and work to provide the best possible education for our children without shifting the tax burden to homeowners.
