BINGHAMTON, NY – Republican George Phillips says he’s still going full speed ahead with his run for the 22nd District Congressional Seat
Phillips says he’s already raised $100,000 since announcing his 4th run for Congress back in March. He is currently a history teacher at Seton Catholic Central and works for the Jack Kemp Foundation as an economic policy advisor.
Phillips says he wants to address tax and regulatory reform, the creation of a dynamic market of choice for health care and the reining in of the national debt. He says Albany is dysfunctional right now and needs Washington’s help to put Upstate on a different course.
“I do believe this election comes down to jobs and the economy. We’re going to put forward a strong platform. We know that the national numbers are certainly on the up tick from tax reform from regulatory reform. But we’re not feeling it as much as we need to here in Upstate New York. We’ve been so far behind for so long, so many people have had family and friends lose their jobs and leave the area. We need to continue to fight and we need to try and uplift Upstate New York
In 2008 and 2010 he lost to Democrat Maurice Hinchey and then in 2016, he finished 3rd in the Republican primary won by Claudia Tenney, however he got the most votes in Broome County.
