Owens created jobs, Doheny worked for wealthy
To the Editor:
It’s easy to compare Congressman Bill Owens’ voting record to help the economy for us in the 23rd District, and his nearly three decades in the North Country actually bringing in those many jobs to Plattsburgh’s closed Air Force base, with Matt Doheny’s extended Wall Street work for the wealthy, as he helped them pile up 6- and 7-figure bonuses during everyone else’s hard times.
Just ask the former GM employee out of work, or the hurting small farm family, or the struggling retailer on Main Street.
