SPENCER BLASTS CLINTON ON “EMPTY PROMISES”

John Spencer, the Republican and Conservative candidate for U.S. Senate, called on Senator  Hillary Clinton to explain her failure to create jobs for the residents of upstate New York.

At an afternoon news conference in Binghamton, Spencer, the former Mayor of Yonkers noted what Clinton hasn't delivered to New York State.

"Six years ago you promised 200,000 new jobs for New Yorkers…you failed and now you owe the voters an explanation”.

Just 48 hours earlier Senator Clinton had visited Binghamton to speak at a venture capital symposium as a part of her re-election campaign.

Spencer had the following to say about Clinton's "empty promises" on economic development.

"Senator Clinton, when it comes to job creation you have a lot of explaining to do. Six years ago you promised 200,000 new jobs for New Yorkers…you failed and now you owe the voters an explanation. The junior Senator doesn’t seem to get it; high taxes and onerous government regulations kill jobs. Tax cuts and a level playing field spurs job creation and grows the economy.”

John Spencer has described his success in Yonkers as a potential model for cities throughout Upstate New York.

During two terms as Mayor of New York’s 4th largest city, Spencer cut the municipal Income Tax Surcharge and the Real Estate Transfer Tax by 66%.  Spencer jump-started waterfront development, creating a business friendly environment that attracted new investment and brought in new jobs.

Spencer continued:

“Six years ago Senator Clinton made empty promises to the residents of Binghamton and upstate New York and now she must be held accountable. Just like her friend, Assembly Speaker Shelly Silver, Senator Clinton is a tax and spend liberal. Clinton and Silver are two “peas in a pod” in that they’ve never met a tax they didn’t like or a regulation they didn’t embrace. We must stop the exodus of jobs out of New York State to Pennsylvania, Ohio and points south. We must take the steps needed to make New York competitive once again.”
