Congresswoman Louise Slaughter has released a new ad against her opponent, County Executive Maggie Brooks in the race for the 25th Congressional District. The new ad started airing Wednesday. The ad focuses on some recent scandals that have happened in Monroe County including the airport director and Robutrad scandals. To watch the ad, click here.
Louise Slaughter's campaign issued this statement: "The Monroe County taxpayers have been footing the bill for Maggie Brooks' cronies for far too long. Scandal after scandal after scandal, the taxpayers of Monroe County have been stuck with the bill for Maggie Brooks' culture of corruption and fraud."
Brooks responded saying, "The fact the Louise Slaughter has set a tone of negative mud slinging with this 30 second attack says more about her failed 25-year record in Congress than anything else."
After spending more than a quarter of a century in Washington, Mrs. Slaughter has let Monroe County down. She's voted to hike our taxes by billions, increase our debt by trillions, and gut our economy of millions of jobs. In fact, she hasn't just contributed to what's wrong in Washington - Louise Slaughter defines what's wrong with Washington. And that's exactly why she is running this disappointing ad to distract from her failed record.
The issues Mrs. Slaughter focuses on are old news, and voters have demonstrated in multiple elections that they trust my leadership and judgment when individuals violate the public's trust. Mrs. Slaughter only cares about holding on to power, with this sad attack proving she will do and say anything to keep it. It's the same old tired politics of Washington and the old boys club of Albany.
Despite Mrs. Slaughter's negativity, I will continue to keep this race focused on real issues and our very different records on jobs, taxes, spending, and debt. While Louise Slaughter fears change in Washington, the voters of Monroe County are yearning for it - and together we will restore fiscal sanity.
