Assembly candidates appeal to voters in NF a day before election

NIAGARA FALLS, N.Y. (WIVB) — Assembly candidates in Niagara County are appealing to voters by doing last minute efforts to “get out the vote.”

Democratic incumbent John Ceretto is running against republican and retired judge, Angelo Morinello for the 145th Assembly District.

The Assembly race is said to be a contentious one. Morinello told News 4, that’s in part to Ceretto switching parties last year.

“My opponent has switched parties more than once in his lifetime so the voters are sitting here wondering where his philosophy is, why has he switched,” said Morinello.

Ceretto says voters don’t care about the change.

“Not at all. People don’t care, my voting record hasn’t changed at all. It’s about service to the community, it’s not about political parties,” said Ceretto.

Both candidates are focused on taxes and job creation.

Morinello says he wants to clean up Albany, while Ceretto says he wants to improve Niagara Falls.

“We need family attractions, we need an experience center, a waterfalls park would be nice for our area, an aquarium,” said Ceretto.

“New York state has been the most corrupt state since Tammany Hall. We have to clean it up, make it fair for everybody and once we do that we can then start fixing the state,” said Morinello.

It is also said that this race could set a record for the most expensive Assembly race ever in upstate New York. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
