Letter to the Editor: In Support of Joe Carvin

County Legislator David Gelfarb supports Carvin.

Dear Editor,

I write to urge my fellow Republicans to vote in upcoming GOP primary on June 26th for my friend Joe Carvin as our candidate for Congress in the newly-drawn 17th Congressional District. Joe has served with great distinction as our Town Supervisor since January 2008, lowering taxes year after year, bringing a sense of honor and dignity to office and providing essential services while reducing spending during his term. Joe also has vast private sector experience in the commercial banking and hedge fund industries, which will be very useful in serving as a Congressman during an era of huge budget deficits. He has governed in a non-partisan fashion, looking for common sense solutions instead of partisan wrangling. Joe has established two successful charities, One World United and Virtuous and Building Community Bridges, both of which have done great work in bringing diverse groups of people together to work toward community betterment. Lastly, Joe has lived and worked all over the world and is fluent in five languages, which will enable him to bring a real understanding of the economic challenges our nation faces in this era of globalization. I can think of nobody more qualified to serve as our Congressperson and strongly urge you to support him on June 26th.

Very truly yours,

David Gelfarb
Rye Brook

County Legislator, 6th Legislative District (R-Port Chester, Rye Brook, Harrison)

Anyone that knows Joe Carvin and lives in Port Chester or Rye Brook, knows that he defended and supported Bart Didden when he ran for Mayor. Same Bart Didden who sent out a racist flyer about Hispanics and women. David Gelfarb is correct in saying that Joe Carvin brings diverse individuals together, but not for the sake of community building. In reality, he is simply using people to pump up his campaign and to create this image of "do gooder," which he definitely is not!

"We are five days away from fundamentally changing the United States of America" 2008 Dear Leader Chairman MaoBama those who supported that 'fundamental change" in 2008 now would like to run for GOP in my district???? Can't do!! Cannot support a person who voted yes to this "fundamental change" and now does a mea culpa. Have some backbone Mr. Carvin you are a grown man. WHY DID YOU VOTE FOR HIM? "HE DIDN'T DO WHAT I THOUGHT HE WOULD DO" per Carvin. THAT IS A NON-ANSWER and you have bloviated enough. WHY DID YOU VOTE FOR SUCH A FUNDAMENTAL CHANGE?? How in the world can you flip-flop so much on such an monumental vote? Where's your moral compass and integrity? RINO! We already have too many in the GOP (local, state, county and federal). I respect Nita Lowey more than I do you at least I know where she is coming from.....

FROM PORT CHESTER WESTMORE NEWS 1/28/11: "Carvin said he supports Didden [for Mayor] and does not think he is a racist. He said his wife, who is black, has viewed Didden’s 2007 flyer, which includes the racial appeal “the Hispanics are running the show already,” and both believe the flyer was race baiting, but not racist." “To castigate somebody as racist without being willing to engage in any conversation or dialogue is totally un- American,” he stated. http://pc.westmorenews.com/atf.php?sid=15447&current_edition=2011-01-28 Yet, Mr. Carvin has a section of his campaign website dedicated to castigating his opponent Jim Russell without ever engaging in debate or dialogue with him about his controversial writings. http://carvin2012.com/a-neo-nazi-field-trip-to-the-met/ Mr. Carvin promotes Village Voice articles like, "A Neo-Nazi Field Trip to the Met" written by Maria Luisa Tucker, a free-lance writer who worked for a very far left news agency, Alternet at the time. From the Alternet's website: - AlterNet’s aim is to inspire action and advocacy on the environment, human rights and civil liberties, social justice, media, health care issues, and more. - AlterNet has developed a unique model of journalism to confront the failures of corporate media, as well as the vitriol and disinformation of right wing media, especially “hate talk” media. http://www.alternet.org/

Carvin can't even answer a question about his own taxes or why he voted for Obama? This was a mess of a presser: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5tAXc917yRo
