'Accomplishments' highlights results-driven candidate Paul Tonko and victories he has delivered for the Capital Region
CAPITAL REGION - Transitioning from a hugely successful summer in Congress to the final month of his campaign for re-election, Congressman Paul Tonko will release his first campaign television advertisement on Tuesday. 'Accomplishments' reminds voters what they're getting when they choose Tonko to represent them in Washington: a fighter who gets things done and puts his community first.
"Voters are tired of negative ads. They want to hear why they should vote for someone, not more phony attacks that distract from the challenges in front of us. I'm proud of my record of job creation, defending basic rights, and leading the charge against climate change, and I'm ready to get back to work for the people," said Tonko.
FULL SCRIPT: I've never been afraid to tackle tough problems. As your Congressman, I’m proud of what we’ve accomplished so far. Passing historic climate change legislation and expanding clean energy with “green collar” jobs. Fighting for reproductive rights against a radical Supreme Court. Bringing thousands of new high-tech jobs to our neighborhoods. I’m Paul Tonko and I approve this message because now, more than ever, we need thoughtful leadership that gets results.
In addition to the accomplishments listed in the 30-second ad, Tonko supported or helped to deliver where voters have asked for action. The measures below were passed by Tonko and Democrats in the House - and were opposed by the majority of Republicans.
Tonko has received endorsements from Planned Parenthood Action Fund, BRADYPAC, National Association of Social Workers, NYS Public Employees Federation, NYS United Teachers, NYS Nurses Association, Sierra Club, NYS AFL-CIO, End Citizens United, NY League of Conservation Voters, BlueGreen Alliance, NY Working Families Party, Civil Service Employees Association, United Federation of Teachers, Transportation Workers Union Local 100, and all local county Democratic committees. The campaign anticipates further endorsements.
