An independent supports Nate McMurray

After the disgraceful exit of Rep. Chris Collins, now a convicted felon, the Republican Party had a chance to reach out to others beyond their base, such as independents and moderate Republicans. Instead they selected Chris Jacobs, whose unwavering allegiance to Trump compelled him to vote against the recent postal bill designed to ensure that mailed prescriptions and pension checks reached citizens in our district in a timely fashion. 

Meanwhile in the neighboring 23rd District, Rep. Tom Reed, who is co-chair of Trump’s New York campaign, voted for the bill, forsaking partisanship in order to support his constituents who were also suffering from mail delays. This is the kind of support we should have gotten from Jacobs, but he chose partisanship instead. 

The time is now right to vote for Nate McMurray to represent us in the 27th District. While Nate is well-informed and articulate in world, national and local events, his focus is on how to best serve the needs of us, his constituents … not the power brokers in D.C. Nate is running for a two-year term, not a lifetime appointment. Let’s give Nate a chance to work for us. 

Voting still matters. Vote for Nate McMurray
