Tuesday, August 11, 2009

EAST SETAUKET, NY: Businessman Randy Altschuler has formally filed a statement of candidacy for US Congress in New York’s First Congressional District with the Federal Election Commission, and issued the following statement:

“I am deeply concerned about our nation’s long-term fiscal stability. It is imperative that we get our economic house in order.

“I am committed to bringing my business experience – combined with a realistic, common-sense approach to problem solving – to help lower taxes, reform government and create jobs.

“As a businessman, I believe we cannot tax and spend our way out of this recession. As a husband and father, I also believe that we have a moral obligation to our children not to saddle them with a mountain of debt. We must ensure that future generations will have the same freedoms and opportunities we currently enjoy.

“My door will always be open, and I understand that it will be my job to listen to the concerns of the citizens of the First Congressional District. It would be an honor and privilege to serve them.”

Randy Altschuler is a businessman, former Fulbright Scholar and graduate of Princeton University and Harvard Business School. He is married to Cheryl Altschuler, MD, a practicing pediatrician in Shirley and Port Jefferson, New York. They have a young son, Noah, and reside in St. James, New York.
