"I will bring a fresh perspective to state politics," Hyson said. "All sides need to collaborate to solve problems in ways that are affordable but do not sacrifice the quality of services government delivers to create strong communities."

He continued, "Our people - especially the younger generations - need to be empowered, and made to feel that they have a voice in what happens in this area. I will work enthusiastically with all our communities to ensure the voice of the Southern Tier is heard in Albany.

"I will focus on our local issues, including finding ways to undertake the heroin epidemic ravaging our communities. I will focus on these issues until they are resolved," concluded Hyson.
