McDonald faces primary challenge

— Marchione said if elected she would target unfunded mandates and government spending.

“We have to get down there (Albany) and do something about the spending,” she said.

She believes citizens should have more choices when it comes to things like property taxes and that officials need to “look beyond the 49,000pages of regulations.”

“The most important things are taxes and finding jobs,”Marchione said, and related to a recent conversation she had with a woman in a grocery store who said her children had left the state because they couldn’t find work.

Both candidates plan on numerous visits in all four counties of the 43rd District. Girardin said Marchione’s campaign hopes to raise more than $200,000. As of January, the most recent time for which reports are available, McDonald had more than $500,000 in his war chest.
