WES PRICE. LEADERSHIP FOR A CHANGE.
Good Jobs for Our Community
For more than 30 years as a business owner, adviser to small businesses and Chamber of Commerce leader, Wes worked to improve job opportunities for families. As a legislator, he will advocate for policies that support job creation: better schools, community colleges and universities; stronger law enforcement; and cooperation by state and local governments to encourage the growth of family-wage businesses.
Accountability in Government
For more than 30 years as an accountant doing municipal audits, Wes made sure local governments were spending money wisely. As a legislator, he will oppose tax increases, push to eliminate ineffective programs, and fight to stabilize funding for education and public safety. And Wes will limit the influence of lobbyists and oppose efforts to allow them to give gifts and free trips to legislators.
Affordable Health Care
For 20 years on the Albany General Hospital board, Wes worked for affordable health care for local families. As a legislator, he will push to reduce prescription drug and medical insurance costs, so families can get the medicines and health care they need.
Respect in the Legislature
For more than 40 years, Wes has led people of divergent viewpoints in projects that help our community. He's tired of legislative gridlock. He will work to end partisan bickering and provide leadership to solve problems for local families.
