Congressman Owens Endorses Tom Gillen For Oswego Mayor

OSWEGO, NY – Tom Gillen today received the endorsement of Congressman Bill Owens in the race for Oswego Mayor.

“Tom Gillen has deep roots in his community and knows what it takes to move Oswego forward,” said Congressman Owens. “Through his business expertise he understands how best to create jobs and further develop the city’s economy. I believe Tom is the right person for the job and I am pleased to support him in his bid to become the next mayor of Oswego.”

Congressman Owens joins New York State Governor Andrew Cuomo and United States Senator Kirsten Gillibrand in the chorus of support Gillen has amassed in the last two weeks. Consistently recognized for his business management acumen and forward-thinking policies, the Gillen for Mayor Campaign continues to gain momentum heading into Election Day.

“Congressman Owens has been a great representative for the people of Oswego and the entire 23rd Congressional District,” said Gillen. “I am honored to receive his endorsement and look forward to a long and productive relationship with his office to ensure that we keep Oswego moving in the right direction.”

Gillen has spent the final full week of the campaign continuing his on-going conversation with the citizens of Oswego, knocking on doors and meeting with community leaders.

“This campaign has been about listening to the people of Oswego,” said Gillen. “By working together, building consensus and tackling our challenges head-on, there is no problem we cannot fix.”

The Gillen for Mayor Campaign will hold Get Out The Vote activities throughout the weekend and Election Day.
