...the public wants to have a member of Congress that is connected to them, and the challenges they face every day. The lack of this is in part why the approval rate for Congress is at 8.8%...
Binghamton, New York (PRWEB) November 18, 2013
On November 18, 2013 Michael Vasquez, in front of the Broome County Courthouse at 10:30AM, announced that he will be entering the 2014 New York 22nd Congressional District race. Mr. Vasquez will also appear in front of the Oneida County Courthouse at 1:00PM with a similar announcement for voters in the northern part of the NY-22. This announcement signals that the Republican ticket would require a primary in 2014.
Also announced for this same day is a celebration/fundraiser event at 6:30PM to be held at the facilities of the VFW Post 1449 located at 103 Nanticoke Ave, Endicott, NY 13760. This is an open event and the public is invited to attend. Donations will be accepted at the event, but are not required.
Mr. Vasquez stated, "I have spent the better part of 2013 directly speaking to the public, business owners, and various organizations across the New York 22nd. I have listened to the concerns of Republicans, Democrats, and Independents; the elderly and retired; the middle class; and the up and coming generation. The people of the NY 22nd want to have their voices heard, presented, and defended in Congress. Concerns with the 2nd & 4th Amendments, drones, immigration, national debt, taxes, and the impact of Obamacare require a Representative with a clear, defined, and consistent position on the issues."
Mr. Vasquez went on to say, "Most of all, the public wants to have a member of Congress that is connected to them, and the challenges they face every day. The lack of this is in part why the approval rate for Congress is at 8.8% according to Real Clear Politics. I believe I am that connection, and I will strive to earn the trust of voters, as I continue to speak with them on how I plan to address these concerns."
