To the Editor:
It is my pleasure to officially endorse Bill Owens for Congress. Bill’s intelligence, integrity and work ethic make him the right choice for Congress.
Our elected officials must work together for the good of all of the people. Congressman Owens record shows that he is a true moderate who is willing to work across party lines in the best interest of his constituents. Congressman Owens (D) worked with Congressman Gibson (R) to host the Federal Agricultural Committee in Saranac Lake, allowing local farmers to have input in the upcoming Federal Farm Bill.
Bill works closely with businesses to promote jobs across the Congressional District. He has been a valued partner with Canadian Companies that seek to set up shop this side of the Canadian border. The Congressman is a tireless advocate working hard to fill unfilled jobs, working with our local schools to make sure our students are prepared to meet the needs of local businesses.
Bill Owens traveled to Newcomb to give the commencement address to the handful of students in this remarkable little school. This speaks volumes about his commitment to all of our communities irrespective of their size.
The Congressman is helping our Retired Veterans and also with current military personnel and their families. Bill is engaged with our Troops just returning stateside from overseas. As a Veteran himself, Bill never fails to acknowledge the sacrifices our military make every day.
Congressman Owens is very responsive to my office inquiries. Bill has responded to me regarding concerns from our businesses, military, farmers, and constituents in general with tough issues that can’t be addressed at the State level.
Congressman Owens is a proven leader. He is non-partisan, honest, smart, and has a genuine concern for the needs of the people in his Congressional District.
Teresa Sayward, State Assemblywoman
