WE DID IT!

November 3, 2010

Thank you, everyone!

When we started out all those months ago, no one thought we’d get anywhere. However, with unending hard work, a dedicated campaign team, and the finest crew of volunteers anyone could ask for, we went from an obscure campaign making the rounds in the dead of winter, to upstart contender, to the chosen nominee of three parties, to Young Gun, and finally to Congresswoman-elect!

To those who pitched in, in any capacity, I cannot thank you enough for your time, your trust, and your friendship. No candidate can ever win alone, and you all were instrumental in this victory: it belongs to all of us. To those who supported my opponent, rest assured I will be listening to all of my constituents, yourselves included. That is one of the most important duties a Representative has, and I won’t forget it.

Now, however, is truly the time to roll up our sleeves, because now the real hard work starts! Our country urgently needs our help, and I intend to do my part to make sure she gets it. I expect to hear from all of you, both in Washington and at home. I promise you that I’m up to the challenge, and I’m ready and eager to take it on.

Let’s get started!


Thank you all! Now for Phase Two.

September 16, 2010

The primary season is over, and Republicans have done me the immense honor of electing me their nominee for U.S. Congress by a 40-point margin! I will officially be on the Republican, Conservative, and Independence Party ballot lines in November, and with your continued support, I will bring the same strength of purpose and clarity of message to John Hall this fall!

(Click the following links to see countywide results for Putnam, Dutchess, Orange, Westchester, and Rockland.)

Now comes the really hard work.  We have to get our message out — not just to Republicans, but to everyone in the 19th District — about reviving the American economy through shrinking the size and scope of the federal government and getting Congress and the White House off the backs of American workers and employers. We know how that’s going to happen. For starters:

  • Cut taxes on individuals (to stimulate commerce) and businesses (to spur job creation).
  • Slash federal spending, starting with suspending the various failed “stimulus” packages and refusing any more bailouts.
  • Repeal/replace/defund the unconstitutional federal takeover of health care.

If we can return to a government that the Founders, in their wisdom, envisioned for us, we can return to a government that will allow our economy to thrive again, and our people to live in liberty.

I cannot thank you enough for your unfailing energy, enthusiasm, and faith this past year on the trail. Now we’ve got a scant seven weeks to build this momentum to an intensity that even Rep. Hall can’t ignore.  Our work is cut out for us; if we can all hold together through November, I’m ready to be your next Congresswoman!

Onward to victory, and once again: thank you!


More of the same is not what we need

2010 Summer Sprint Fundraising Drive!

August 23, 2010

 
2010 Summer Sprint Fundraising Drive(Note: This post is bumped to the top of the blog until after our Summer Sprint ends on August 25. Scroll down for our newest blog posts!)

You’ve been reading it here, on our website, on our Facebook and Twitter feeds, and all over the media: even now, with their backs against the wall, the President and Congressional Democrats don’t get it.  John Hall doesn’t get it.  Against the express will of the American public, President Obama, Speaker Pelosi, and John Hall — who has voted with Nancy Pelosi 98% of the time — insist on expanding the federal government’s influence ever more, smothering our private sector and threatening not only our financial future but our unique Constitutional freedoms.

The “summer of recovery” has turned into a summer of stagnation, and those responsible for it are scrambling to avoid consequences, deflecting attention, or pretending that things are fine.  Nancy Pelosi talks of investigating Americans who’ve simply spoken their minds; President Obama has decided that the definition of the word “tax” can be changed according to political convenience; John Hall hides behind a colleague to answer questions on those rare occasions when he actually meets with constituents.

Treating reality and accountability as optional may have worked in the election of 2008, but in 2010 our voters are about to render a hard reckoning on what really works and what absolutely doesn’t work.  Those of us old enough to remember the new morning in America when we elected President Reagan after the disastrous Carter years are ready to repeat that triumph and get the government off our backs.

That’s why I’m running–to renew America’s promise just as President Reagan did:  to renew our faith in the Constitution; to renew our economy and create jobs by relieving our citizens of punishing taxation and suffocating regulation.  My simple mission is to liberate you to spend and invest and renew the economy right here at home, and renew the opportunities that our friends and neighbors here so urgently need.

And, as much as my team and I pour every ounce of energy into the quest we all share, we can’t do it without you.  Please join our Summer Sprint Drive by contributing as generously as you can before this Wednesday, August 25, to power us over the summer towards Election Day.  And, after you contribute what you can spare, please call 10 friends (or 25 friends!) and ask them to do the same.  With your support, we cannot fail.  Onward together, and thank you!

Lips say “no comment,” but checkbook says… (VIDEO)

August 13, 2010

 
Seems as though even being presented with the question by a bright, youthful face won’t inspire John Hall to say the right thing about Charles Rangel’s fitness to remain in the House.  13 ethics violations apparently aren’t enough to move a man who prefers to sit on the sidelines.  This time, some Young Voters caught Mr. Hall’s latest dodge on video.
