Westchester--June 21 ...Former Congresswoman Sue Kelly (R-NY-19) today called on Rockland and Westchester County Republicans to go to their polling stations this Tuesday, June 26th to vote for businessman and Rye Town Supervisor Joe Carvin for congress in the newly drawn 17th Congressional District. "Westchester and Rockland Republicans have an opportunity and an obligation to choose, hands-down, one of the most promising candidates for Congress to come out of this region for some time," Congresswoman Kelly said. "Joe Carvin has extraordinary national and international business experience and his fiscal management as Rye Town Supervisor has been stellar, reducing taxes each year he has been in office and reining in spending by 25%. Tuesday's primary falls at an unusual time of the year, so it is incumbent upon each of us as Republicans to mark our calendars for this Tuesday, June 26." 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.
"It is an enormous honor to be endorsed by our great former congresswoman Sue Kelly," Mr. Carvin said. "Her help in educating Republican voters about Tuesday's primary is greatly appreciated. I believe I can make a significant difference in Congress to reduce our national debt and unleash the private sector economy once again in America, but I need the support of Rockland and Westchester Republicans on Tuesday to get there. Having Congresswoman Kelly's support is a tremendous help toward that effort." Mr. Carvin has been endorsed in recent days by Congressman Bob Turner (R-NY 9), Congresswoman Nan Hayworth (R-NY-19), and Assemblyman Robert Castelli (R-Golden's Bridge), and many others. Joe Carvin was born and raised in Port Chester, NY. He graduated Cum Laude from Tulane University with a B.A. in International Relations and became a Rotary Foundation Ambassadorial Scholar to Senegal where he was awarded an honorary degree from the United Nations Institute for Economic Planning and Development. He holds an M.B.A from New York University and an M.P.A. from Harvard University. He speaks fluent Spanish, Portuguese, French, and Wolof (a West African language). After working a number of years with Deutsche Bank he helped set up Altima Partners where he helps finance some of the largest farms in the world. Mr. Carvin lives in Rye with his wife, a non-practicing attorney, and two daughters, Keira and Rhianna who attend local public schools. His son, Michael, lives and works in New York City. Mr. Carvin refuses to accept a salary as Rye Town Supervisor. ###
