NY-26: Chris Lee Wins

by on November 5, 2008

in an otherwise sad election, it does give me great pleasure to see Chris Lee elected to Congress. Alice Kryzan’s smears didn’t work, and the voters of the 26th District have chosen someone who will look out for their best interests. I also feel honored to have been a part of the fight to hold on the 26th District.

Congratulations to Chris Lee. Fight for us. Give ’em hell.

Excerpts from Chris Lee’s remarks to supporters at the Buffalo Niagara Marriott after being declared the winner of the 26th district Congressional election:

“Tonight we are one step closer to getting Western New York and our country back on track.

“We are now going to take to Washington our agenda of job creation, lowering taxes and making government more accountable.

“What has brought me here tonight has truly been a team effort – I owe a debt of gratitude to the dedicated group who helped run this campaign, to the incredible number of volunteers and the more than 1,300 supporters who invested their resources into our message. I am grateful to my family for their love and support. They have been incredible.

“My career has been solely in private sector these past 20 years. I will bring a much needed voice to Washington as someone who knows how difficult it is to earn a dollar and will therefore be a much better steward of your hard-earned tax dollars.

“This is a victory worth celebrating – but we certainly have our work cut out for us, and I will need your help and support in the months ahead.”
