"Contrast" Lays Out Nita Lowey's 24-Year Record of Overspending and 
Its Negative Consequences on the U.S. Job Market 
Westchester-Rockland--Aug. 13... Rye Town Supervisor and congressional candidate Joe Carvin (R-NY-17), who has reduced the size of his government by 25% and cut taxes every year he has served in office, today released the first radio advertisement in his race for Congress in New York's 17th District, which encompasses most of Northern Westchester and all of Rockland County.  

The radio spot can be heard here

The 60-second ad, entitled "Contrast," begins with the voice of a young a college graduate struggling to find work.  She asks her father, "When is this going to turn around?," a question being asked in Westchester and Rockland every day. According to a recent study, 54% of 2012 U.S. college graduates are either unemployed or underemployed. 

"Today's job crisis is rooted in our debt and spending crisis, and our incumbent congresswoman only makes that worse with every term she serves," Mr. Carvin said. "The ad "Contrast" offers votes just that -- a clear contrast in candidates; one who has spent and borrowed us into a corner, and one who is cutting spending and taxes to positive effect.  I like and respect Ms. Lowey for her 24 years of service, but it is imperative that this country begin moving in a more responsible direction."

"Contrast" will begin airing on Rockland Westchester radio stations today. The full script is below.

Dad: Yes, I can't remember the economy being this bad for this long.

PAUSEHi, I'm Joe Carvin.
Conversations like this are all too common today.
The economic crisis has become a jobs crisis.
The official unemployment rate of 8.2% but the real unemployment is 15 percent.
Washington has truly failed us.
Nita Lowey has been in Congress for 24 years.
I would like to replace her to help get us back on the right path.
Nita Lowey has consistently voted to increase spending
while I've cut spending 25% as Rye Town Supervisor.
Nita Lowey has voted to make government larger
while I intend to eliminate my own government job.
We have different views on how to fix the economy.
I hope you agree with me.
I am Joe Carvin and I approve this message.
