Aubertine claims Ritchie's stance on healthcare 'vague and potentially devasting'

State Sen. Darrel Aubertine’s campaign is calling his opponent’s stance on the healthcare “vague and potentially devastating proposals from Patty Ritchie to gut healthcare for children, seniors, and struggling families in Central New York and the North Country.”
