New York-Jun 21...Congresswoman Nan Hayworth (R-NY-19), a member of the House Financial Services Committee and the Congressional Job Creators Caucus, today endorsed businessman and Rye Town Supervisor Joe Carvin (R) for Congress in New York's 17th District (Westchester-Rockland).
Mr. Carvin, 57, a married father of three, is running in a Republican Primary for the House seat now held by Congresswoman Nita Lowey (D-WFP). Mr. Carvin is unanimously endorsed for the office by the Westchester and Rockland Republican and Conservative party committees.
"Joe Carvin has been a star as Rye Town Supervisor for the past four years and I'm confident he'll be one in Congress, too," Congresswoman Hayworth said. "I'm impressed that Joe has reduced town spending by 25% in just over three years, and he's lowered taxes every year he has held office. He has lived and worked on five continents; he'll bring deep and broad national and international business experience to Washington. We need all our Westchester and Rockland voters to head to the polls on Tuesday and help send Joe Carvin to Congress."
"It is an honor to be endorsed by Congresswoman Hayworth," Mr. Carvin said. "Dr. Hayworth is at the center of a new generation of leaders in Congress with the courage to do what's necessary to get this country back on track. I stand ready to fight alongside her in tackling the staggering national debt haunting our children's dreams and stifling American job growth. Congresswoman Hayworth also knows how to win in a tough race. I am grateful to have her on my team."
