Statement from NYSDC Chair June O’Neill on the Official Launch of Scott Murphy’s Campaign

February 18, 2009

GLENS FALLS, NY – New York State Democratic Committee Chair June O’Neill today issued the following statement on the official launch of Scott Murphy’s campaign:

“Earlier today I had the privilege of joining Scott Murphy at the official launch of his campaign. During this difficult economic period, we need a leader who will fight for the best interests of Upstate residents. I believe Scott is that leader.

Unlike his opponent, Republican Jim Tedisco – who has nothing more to offer than more of the same failed policies – Scott understands what Upstate New York really needs. For more than 15 years, he has served on the front lines of the fight to create jobs, strengthen communities, and find new ways to meet old challenges. Over the course of his career, Scott’s built successful companies, assisted entrepreneurs in growing their small businesses, and most of all, helped to generate more than 1,000 jobs.

Jim Tedisco represents the status quo – contributing to the wasteful and reckless spending our state saw before Democrats regained control in Albany. We need a new way of thinking. Scott Murphy will bring his years of economic and business experience, along with his passion for helping Upstate New York thrive, with him to Washington. We can trust him to help get our country moving in the right direction again.”
