Albany attorney has high aspirations

June 28, 2004

Albany-- Attorney Jim Finkelstein is no stranger to politics. He's never been elected, but he has high aspirations.

Finkelstein is running for the Democratic nomination to the U.S. Senate and he's hoping the anti-war sentiment will propel his campaign. Finkelstein is adamantly opposed to it.

On domestic issues, the 52-year-old Democrat proposes eliminating all medical malpractice costs to doctors and hospitals, rejecting President Bush's call for amnesty for illegal aliens, and ending incentives for corporations to close American factories and "outsource" their labor.

Finkelstein says he wants a tax system that doesn't reward millionaires with huge tax breaks for owning mansions while giving only a few hundred dollars to middle class homeowners.
