SPECTRUM NEWS VIDEO: Republican New York tate Senator-elect Bob Antonacci is still the comptroller for Onondaga County, but when he transitions to his new role, he says his top priorities will be exactly what he promised on the campaign trail. He wants to focus on economic development, the hot issue of bringing Amazon into the Upstate New York mix, the role of the Legislature when it comes to oversight and accountability, ethics and term limits.

Working across party lines is something Antonacci feels strongly about, especially with the power flip in the Senate. He plans to reach out the rookie senators about the issues at hand.

The senator-elect says that he will always protect his district and the people that saw him along the way when he transitions into his new role.
