Last year, I spent a day with then-Assemblyman and now County Executive George Latimer. We traveled throughout his district documenting his interactions with his constituents.
Mr. Latimer credits his success in politics to getting to know the people he represents on a personal level. According to Latimer, this experience provides him with different perspectives which he can then bring with him to Albany. In our interviews with Senator Latimer, we learned why he resists the idea of being known as a “career politician” as he tries to represent people as aggressively today as if if it were his first day in public office.
