JAMESTOWN, NY- Commander John Plumb, a 4th generation Western New Yorker and Navy Veteran running for Congress in NY-23, today released a map pf locations he has been asked to go in service to our country while in the Navy, the Navy Reserve, and at the Pentagon.

Congressman Tom Reed has repeatedly tried to score cheap political points by attempting to distort Commander Plumb’s years of service to our country. Today’s unprecedented act by Commander Plumb is to show Congressman Tom Reed what selfless service to our nation actually looks like – and that it requires a commitment to going where you are asked, whether it be the Arctic Circle, the Middle East, or even Washington, DC.

“For over twenty-two years I have had the privilege to serve shoulder to shoulder with the best and bravest men and women in the world, all around the world. As any member of the military or their family will tell you, when the orders come down, you don’t question it – you go and complete the mission and protect our country at home or abroad. It’s in our blood, it’s who we are, and I won’t ever run away from that,” said Commander Plumb.

“I can take Congressman Reed’s cheap politically motivated attacks – I would expect nothing less from a Washington Politician – but I will not stand for his continued attacks on the men and women of our armed forces and their families, who always answer the call and go where they’re ordered to serve and sacrifice so people here at home can be safe from harm.” assed Plumb.

If Congressman Reed is so out of touch with regular people that he doesn’t understand military  men and women makes sacrifices for our country and our nation’s safety, then Congressman Reed is unfit to represent New York, our families, our service members and our veterans.”

    In fairness to Reed he also does the job his boss tells him to do. Of course, his boss is ALEC.

    This fits Reed’s campaign strategy in at least two ways: make it about his opponent rather than his performance in office and pose as a good old boy fixing cars, delivering parcels, serving coffee as one of us might

    Go John! Tom’s performance as a representative has been bad enough. But Reed’s conduct as a candidate is atrocious.
