"I was glad to be able to join Nate this weekend. His message speaks to the people of Jamestown and all of Chautauqua County, one where the economy is fairer for everyone and a government that puts creating middle class jobs above party politics," said Teresi.
"The residents of Chautauqua County need a representative that's not going to incentivize sending jobs overseas, and is going to be willing to invest in the middle class to get our economy going again. Going door to door, I heard story after story of people who played by the rules their entire lives, got an education and a job, but in this recent economy, it's just not cutting it. We need to make our economy and our tax system fair again, and not give tax breaks to millionaires at the expense of growing our debt and deficit or cutting essential investments in job growth," said Shinagawa.
