Congressional candidate Plumb to visit Westfield

April 14, 2016
Westfield Republican

A great opportunity is being afforded for western New Yorkers to meet John Plumb, who has been recruited to run for Congress in the 23rd District against Tom Reed.

Plumb grew up in Randolph and is a graduate of Notre Dame with a doctorate in aerospace engineering. He spent seven years in active duty in the Navy on a submarine, and still continues in the Reserves. He is quoted as saying, "On a submarine you learn that politics and skin color don't matter. Everyone is together inside of a metal box surrounded by miles of wire and everyone has to work together, get stuff done and go home safe." That, he said, is how government should work.

The main reason he is running to be the representative in N.Y.'s 23rd is that he looks at Congress and sees people putting politics first. Real Americans put duty first.

Plumb calls himself an Independent Democrat. He feels both state and federal governments are ignoring rural New York so when people asked him to come home and run for office, he agreed. He holds the attitude that his job is to get things done.

If you are concerned about the current dysfunction in government and would like to see someone with interests in Western New York, come out and meet Plumb on April 27 from 6 to 8 p.m. at the YWCA in Westfield.
