Angelino is a combat veteran who served in the Middle East during the 1990s and early 2000s. He also served as the Norwich Chief of Police and fire chief. The announcement follows current Assemblyman Clifford W. Crouch’s (R-Bainbridge) decision to not seek reelection. (WBNG) — Joe Angelino announced his bid for New York State Assembly in the 122nd District for the 2020 election. Angelino is running as a republican. The candidate says he will fight for “Upstate values” and “common sense” in a press release sent to 12 News. “New York State government is moving in the wrong direction. Andrew Cuomo and the Downstate liberal politicians are pushing a hard left agenda that helps criminals while ignoring crime victims, raises taxes, exports our jobs and young people, and infringes on our rights,” he said.
