While experts and scientists battle with the ‘what’ is causing dozens of blooms each summer in lakes around the region – spotters with one volunteer organization are putting in the work to alert residents about harmful algae blooms; and where they pop up. Seneca Lake Pure Waters Association is that organization, and Frank DiOrio was in-studio this week discussing the HAB season, as it draws to a close.
“There’s still plenty to watch on Seneca Lake; and as HAB season comes to a close, that’s where we shift our attention,” explained DiOrio who was featured in this week’s Sunday Conversation presented by FingerLakes1.com. “But we’re not going to stop. We’ll work throughout the winter to improve our reporting processes and efforts for next summer and fall.”
W. Casey McDonald is running for Congress. The Republican says his challenge to incumbent Rep. Tom Reed is based on the things he’s observed over the last several years. While challenging an incumbent comes with difficulties, he’s optimistic that with the support of the 23rd Congressional District – he will be able to mount a winning primary; and general election campaign.
This week, McDonald was in-studio talking about his campaign.
Roger Misso, a Red Creek native, says he’s running because there wasn’t time to waste. The Democrat is among the field of challengers, vying for support in the 24th Congressional District to challenge Rep. John Katko, the incumbent Republican, in the 2020 election. The 24th District is a complicated one, which has flipped parties before; and is ripe for Democrats to grab if the incumbent does not deliver a strong message that resonates.
Misso discussed his candidacy, the issues, and how he plans to make the 24th Congressional District, and Central New York as a whole – a better place to live for everyone. He touts a unifying message that aims to bring together rural and urban voters – which is an important quality for anyone vying to represent the 24th.
