March 21, 2012 Re: Request for Your Support Dear Republican Leaders, I am writing to ask for your support. I am planning to run for the U.S. House of Representatives this year against Congresswoman Nita Lowey whose district has been substantially changed in redistricting. I believe I can defeat Mrs. Lowey in this new district with your backing, and I am willing to invest a substantial amount of my personal resources to do so. I have already retained a top-notch campaign team and I am raring to go with your support. I'm running for Congress because I'm a financial expert with worldwide business experience. I understand the depths of this nation's challenges and I'm willing to tell the voters the truth about what it will take to get this country back on course -- to grow jobs and reduce our dangerously unsustainable debt load. The problems we are facing on the national level directly impact our local communities and families and they must be dealt with honestly and firmly. I am a businessman who entered politics just a few years ago. I currently serve as Supervisor of the Town of Rye, where I have reduced expenditures by 25%, cut taxes every year I have been in office, and led the charge to dissolve town government. I refuse to take the $17,000 salary I am entitled to until I am able to eliminate town taxes entirely. I was re-elected with 62% of the vote in a district that is overwhelmingly Democrat. I work as an asset manager and hold degrees from Tulane University (B.A.), New York University (M.B.A.), and Harvard University (M.P.A.). I have lived and worked on five continents and I speak five languages fluently, including Spanish and Portuguese -- in a district with a great number of voters speaking those languages. I am married and I have three wonderful children. (As a side note, I am also the brother of the attorney who will be arguing to defeat Obamacare before the U.S. Supreme Court this year.) If I am given the Republican nomination, I will proudly espouse our party's ideals in every corner of this Rockland-Westchester district, and in every language I can speak. I am enormously grateful for the kind and encouraging comments I have received from those of you I have met with, and I look forward to meeting with each and every one of you as soon as possible. Your early support is critical to my success in this race. No one knows this ground better than you do. I am available to you day and night with any questions or suggestions you may have. I can be reached on my mobile phone at xxx-xxx-xxxx. I very much look forward to speaking with you. Sincerely, Joe Carvin P.S. Nita Lowey’s district is now winnable. Please help me get out of the gate strongly!
