BUFFALO — Buffalo real estate developer Carl Paladino is set to formally enter the race for New York governor.
The outspoken businessman says he’ll spend up to $10 million of his own money for the chance to shake things up in Albany.
He plans to petition his way onto the Republican primary ballot and has talked about creating a tea party line in the general election.
His platform includes cutting taxes by 10 percent, closing the state’s borders to welfare recipients and freezing all state and local government and school district wages. He also says he’d cut the budget across the board if necessary and overhaul education spending.
Paladino’s formal announcement was scheduled for Monday evening in Buffalo.
After that, he plans to travel to Albany, New York City and Syracuse.
