Senator Charles Schumer endorses Congresswoman Carolyn Maloney
In these tough times, New Yorkers need tough leaders on their side. And when it comes to tough, effective leadership – Carolyn Maloney is at the top of the list.
Working alongside my Democratic colleagues and President Obama to get our economy back on track is hard work. Digging our country out of the Great Recession and fighting obstructionism at every turn takes persistence and dedication. And I'm lucky to have a strong and effective ally in Carolyn.
Carolyn understands that many Americans are struggling to make ends meet. And she has been relentless in the fight to create jobs and stabilize our economy.
Carolyn is a smart, forward-thinking and effective legislator. Together, we secured billions of federal dollars for two of the largest infrastructure projects in the country – the 2nd Avenue Subway and the Queens-Manhattan Connector. This was no easy feat, but thanks to her hard work, thousands of New Yorkers have good-paying jobs.
And Carolyn fought to pass important initiatives to help small businesses who are hurting in these tough times and to encourage hiring. We're not out of the woods yet; our economy has yet to recover, but we're headed in the right direction, thanks to Carolyn and hardworking Democrats in Congress.
Simply put - New Yorkers and Americans need her expertise and her continued, effective leadership.
