Why Brindisi is clear choice in November

Posted

In 2016, nobody represented change more than President Trump. Now, grandstanding and abrasiveness have become the norm on both sides. This culture has created politicians who market themselves on who they hate, more than what they will do for us. Today, the outliers are the politicians who cut through the bickering, work with both parties, and actually legislate.

Congressman Anthony Brindisi is one of these outliers:

— 95% of his bills are bipartisan;

— He is a member of the bipartisan Problem Solvers Caucus;

— And he enjoys positive relationships with both Republicans and Democrats.

Brindisi understands that the job begins and ends with tangible results for constituents. One of his signature legislative accomplishments is the SPOONSS Act requiring the DOD to purchase American-made flatware (the only American producer of flatware is here in New York’s 22nd District). The bill was originally drafted by Claudia Tenney, but she was too busy trying to win the culture war to put it to a vote. Brindisi recognized the bill’s importance of creating jobs here, so he pushed it through Congress, and it was signed into law by President Trump. He got it done.

Representatives need to stop yelling and start legislating. Brindisi is the clear choice this November. 

— Stephen Davis, Clinton
