State Assemblywoman Marge Markey (D-Maspeth) pledged to bring more money for services back to her district while her Republican opponent, Tony Nunziato, promised to cap government spending as they moved into the final weeks of the campaign before the Nov. 2 election.

Markey and Nunziato are running for the 30th Assembly District seat, which encompasses Maspeth and Woodside as well as parts of Middle Village, Astoria, Sunnyside and Long Island City. They also spoke on their plans to improve the job market and the district as a whole.
