									    WILSON
ANNOUNCES
CAMPAIGN
FOR
NEW
YORK’S

            19TH
CONGRESSIONAL
DISTRICT

 Mayor
Tom
Wilson:
“Congress
is
a
dysfunc;onal
mess.

It’s
;me
to
fight
for
what’s 

 right
–
and
that
means
crea;ng
jobs,
rebuilding
our
infrastructure,
and
standing
up 

 for
the
middle‐class.
Our
district
needs
a
leader,
not

a
naysayer.”

January 
 10, 
 2011 
 ‐‐ 
 TUXEDO 
 PARK, 
 NY 
 ‐‐ 
 Mayor 
 Tom 
 Wilson 
 today 
 announced 
 his 
 candidacy 
 to

represent
New
York
families
in
the
19th
Congressional
District.
Wilson,
the
Mayor
of
Tuxedo
Park, 

took
Congress
to
task
for
their
do‐nothing
aQtude
that
has
lost
touch
with
middle‐class
families.



Wilson
remarked,
“In
these
tough
economic
Omes,
it’s 
outrageous
that
so
many
in
Washington
are

more
interested
in
bickering
and
naysaying
than
doing
what’s
right.

They’ve
lost
sight
of
what
really

maPers
–
creaOng
jobs
 and
compeOng
in
the
global
economy.
 
Too
many
D.C.
insiders
are
more

interested
in
special
tax
breaks
for
oil
and
insurance
companies
–
while
opposing
a
payroll
tax
cut
for 

middle‐class
families
who
need
it
the
most.
 
It’s
Ome
to
bring
common
sense
back
to
Washington.

That’s
why
I’m
running
for
Congress.”

Wilson
knows
what
it’s
like
to
take
on
the
special
interests
and
poliOcs
as
usual
‐‐
firsthand.
 
Tom

became
concerned
with
an
irresponsible
real
estate
development
plan
in
the
Hudson
Valley
–
that

would
negaOvely
impact
the
local
economy
and
our
shared
sense
of
community.
 
To
fight
for
the

rights
of
Hudson
Valley
families,
Tom
led
a
grassroots
effort,
forming
Tuxedo
Land
Trust
(TLT).
 
The

grassroots
Trust
was
established
not
only
to
oppose
hazardous
and
irresponsible
development,
but
to

promote 
 common 
 sense, 
 local 
 growth 
 ‐‐ 
 low 
 carbon, 
 clean 
 water, 
 renewable 
 energy 
 – 
 while

prevenOng 
 deforestaOon. 
 TLT
 took 
 on 
 a 
 mulO‐billion 
 dollar 
 developer 
 and 
 was 
 credited 
 with

prevenOng 
 the
 degradaOon 
 of
 Hudson 
 Valley’s 
 major 
 source 
 of 
 drinking 
 water. 
 
 Following 
 this

successful
grassroots,
community
effort,
Tom
went
on
to
become
Tuxedo
Park
Trustee
and
ulOmately

Mayor,
working
to
bring
people
together
with
a
vision
to
grow
our
local
economy
with
a
strong,

community‐based
approach.

“The
more
work
I
do
as
a
Mayor,
the
clearer
it
is
to
me
that
Washington
is
broken.
Families
and
small

communiOes
are
geQng
squeezed
by
a
heavy
economic
burden.

We
need
creaOve
soluOons
to
help

our
communiOes
thrive,”
Wilson
remarked,
“In
our
villages
and
towns,
there
isn’t
Ome
to
pander
or

finger‐point. 
 
It’s 
 about 
 geQng 
 things 
 done. 
 Improving 
 our 
 infrastructure. 
 
 CreaOng 
 jobs. 
 
 And

balancing
the
budget
–
the
right
way.

It
should
be
no
different
in
Washington.”
