The Republican ticket for Governor and Lieutenant Governor will be meeting with voters tomorrow evening in Owego.

Westchester County Executive Rob Astorino and his running mate, Chemung County Sheriff Chris Moss, will hold a joint appearance in Hickories Park at 7 p.m.

After making individual remarks to the crowd, both men will be available to the public to greet supporters and answer questions.

Astorino's Deputy Campaign Manager, Bijoy Datta, says both candidates have been keeping up a grueling schedule.

"Compare that with Andrew Cuomo or Cathy Hochul, the Democrats that are running. You know their public schedules; pretty much every day they're not in this area. Where again you've got Rob and Chris that are doing six, eight, 10 events every single day, seven days a week. That's because they want to share with the voters directly, face to face, eye to eye, what they stand for and what they would do to lead the state," said Datta.

Datta says it is somewhat rare for both candidates to appear at the same event. The location provides an opportunity for people in Tioga, Broome and Chemung counties to meet the Republican ticket.
