|Candidate for Congress James Brown, Chubby Checkers, |
Candidates Len Suzio, and Linda Syznkowicz
Syznkowics recently gave an interview with editor Cassandra Day for the Middletown Press, part of her platform of "Fresh Ideas & Common Sense" she explains as follows:
“Fresh ideas and common sense is my tagline,” Szynkowicz says of her run for Serra’s seat. Some of those ideas include a push to allow cable customers to donate to a campaign so senior citizens can enjoy cable television at an affordable rate, much like how electric utility customers can give $1 to help the less fortunate with winter heating bills.
“When they’re home, they should be relaxing,” Szynkowicz says of the elderly.“They’ve worked all their lives and cable is just too expensive.”
Getting out in the community and knocking on doors has given her several “common-sense” ideas and a platform to run on. “I’ve talked to a lot of people and I’ve found a lot of common ground.”
Szynkowicz has also named state taxes and health care as some cornerstones of her General Assembly bid, and suggested that a statewide audit of departmental spending was warranted.
“I believe in economics 101, which is, if you want to raise revenue, you lower taxes. You lower taxes, people are more free with their spending. People are more free with their spending, they hire more people to work,” said Szynkowicz.
“I have an idea for a bill that I’m calling the ‘What’s Up Doc’ bill.” She says that she would like to see 50-percent discounts for patients who had to wait more than an hour to see a doctor and that, after 90 minutes of waiting, those visits should be free.
“This would only affect those who are double- and triple-booking,” says Szynkowicz.
