Talking to state Rep. David Rutigliano (R-123rd), it is generally not long before the word “work” comes up. The three-term incumbent enjoys talking about it almost as much as he enjoys participating in it.
“I’m a huge proponent of employment, and I aim to do everything I can to help people get it,” Rutigliano said Tuesday afternoon. “I’m a product of that system. I was washing dishes at 16 years old, learned from good people and applied to culinary school, and here I am.”
