SPENCER RELEASES NEW TV AD

TV SPOT TOUTS SUCCESSES AS MAYOR

"I'M RUNNING FOR U.S. SENATE, NOT PRESIDENT"

Yonkers, New York -- John Spencer, the Republican-Conservative candidate for U.S. Senate, today released a new TV commercial that tout's his successes as Mayor of Yonkers, New York's fourth largest city.

The commercial can be found on The Spencer Blog at http://www.joinspencer.com and Spencer for U.S. Senate at http://www.spencerforsenate.com.

The positive 30 second television focuses on Spencer's two-term career in historically Democratic Yonkers.

"As Mayor, I cut taxes.  I restored fiscal sanity.  I eliminated the State's Emergency Financial Control Board and I helped to end federal court-ordered oversight of a billion dollar desegregation case," said Spencer. "I understand the problems that affect urban areas across New York State.  As U.S. Senator, I will work with local and federal officials to bring about a new renaissance to urban areas across the Empire State."

Spencer was re-elected Mayor in a city where Democrats have an overwhelming 2-1 edge in voter registration.

"Clinton only talks about creating jobs.  I've done it," emphasized Spencer. "When one looks at Buffalo, Rochester, Syracuse, Binghamton and Poughkeepsie -- you see the same stagnation that threatened my home city of Yonkers.  By cutting taxes and reducing the cost of doing business, my administration created thousands of new jobs and revitalized our Hudson River waterfront."

In contrast to Senator Clinton, John Spencer brought in over $600 million in new economic development to the city of Yonkers.

Following is the script for the 30 second television ad ("City In Crisis"):

Announcer:

Yonkers was a city in trouble.

Its finances taken over by the State.

Its schools run by the courts

Its people paid an income tax surcharge.

Then they elected John Spencer, Mayor.  New businesses grew.  The waterfront was developed.

He cut the surcharge by two-thirds.  Restored local control.  The courts backed his education reforms.

John created more jobs, and he lowered taxes.

Spencer:
I'm John Spencer and I approved this message because I'm running for U.S. Senate.  Not President.
The television spot was produced by ImageMakers/George Hudak with content and development by John McLaughlin and Associates and Nelson Warfield.
