Maloney’s Grassroots Momentum Surges As Campaign Knocks on 7,058 Doors in the Last Week

Newburgh, NY –  With the help of dozens of volunteers,  Sean Patrick Maloney’s campaign knocked on 7,058 doors as part of the 7 Days to 7K challenge.  Unable to match Maloney’s local grassroots support, Tea Party Congresswoman Nan Hayworth has now resorted to busing in dozens of DC Republicans to pitch Hudson Valley voters on her extreme record in Washington.  

"Tea Party Congresswoman Nan Hayworth’s partisan games are so unpopular in the Hudson Valley, she has to literally bus in Washington Republicans to pitch her radical record in Congress.  Our Hudson Valley neighbors don’t need DC Republicans spinning Nan Hayworth’s Tea Party record of privatizing Social Security, giving multimillionaires like herself huge tax breaks, and defunding Planned Parenthood - her record speaks for itself,” said Stephanie Formas, spokeswoman for Sean Patrick Maloney.

Another Week With No Answers from Hayworth on Her 483 Days of Silence on Energy Hikes

While in Washington, Tea Party Congresswoman Nan Hayworth spent 483 days in Congress without saying a single word about the proposed Federal Energy Regulatory Commission rate hikes. Now, Congresswoman Hayworth is resorting to embarrassingly false attacks on the work Sean Patrick Maloney has been doing across the aisle to pass unprecedented legislation to reverse these hikes. 

“When Hudson Valley families and businesses faced utility hikes, Tea Party Nan spent 483 days in Congress without uttering a single word on FERC’s price increases, so now she’s resorting to embarrassingly false attacks on Sean’s work to pass a bipartisan bill to stop these hikes and save taxpayers hundreds of millions of dollars,” said Stephanie Formas, spokeswoman for Sean Patrick Maloney. “Folks in the Hudson Valley are paying the price at their homes and businesses because for 483 days Tea Party Congresswoman Hayworth was too focused on privatizing Social Security, cutting her own taxes and defunding Planned Parenthood.” 

Unlike Nan Hayworth’s Tea Party Agenda, Sean’s work has been focused on getting results, not playing political games. Maybe that is why such a long list of Republicans, local editorial boards, newspapers, business groups, and other media outlets have directly contradicted Hayworth’s bizarre attacks. 

Dutchess County Executive Marcus J. Molinaro. “Congressmen Maloney and Gibson have called FERC to the carpet and rightfully so.”

Dutchess County Chamber of Commerce: “On behalf of the business community, we applaud the tenacity of U.S. Reps. Sean Patrick Maloney and Chris Gibson, as well as Dutchess County Executive Marcus Molinaro, in working to stop the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission’s new capacity zone.”

Poughkeepsie Journal: Maloney has done “excellent work to get the matter this far.” “The bipartisan measure that Maloney, D-Cold Spring, ushered through the House with Rep. Chris Gibson, R-Kinderhook, should make the bully in question – the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission – take notice […]Maloney and Gibson deftly got this amendment in the massive 2015 Energy and Water Appropriations Bill passed by the House last week […]The two local representatives have done excellent work to get the matter this far. Their actions should serve as a wake-up call to FERC that this area is deadly serious about the ramifications of the new capacity zone and want something done about it.” [Poughkeepsie Journal, 7/15/14]

Times Herald Record: Maloney Has Been “Crusading to Undo the Unpopular Capacity Zone.” “Rep. Sean Patrick Maloney announced Friday he has asked the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission to return to Hudson Valley electricity customers the increases they’ve paid on their bills since a controversial new “capacity zone” took effect in May […] Both Maloney and Rep. Chris Gibson, the Republican representing the neighboring 19th Congressional District, have been crusading to undo the unpopular capacity zone, which was put in place to try to lure more power plants to the Hudson Valley but has had the immediate effect of hiking residential power bills by 5 to 6 percent. They succeeded in attaching to a House spending bill in July a provision that would deny FERC funding to implement the new zone.” [Times Herald Record, 9/12/14]

WAMC: Maloney Continues the Fight Against Capacity Zone. “Maloney this year fought to reverse the capacity zone’s implementation and continues that fight today.” [WAMC, 9/8/14]

Maloney warning: “God help FERC.”  “Thursday’s vote in the House of Representatives specifically said FERC cannot continue to impose its new capacity zone and fees on the Mid-Hudson region of New York and the measure’s two sponsors, Congressman Sean Patrick Maloney (D, NY-18) and Christopher Gibson (R, NY-19) Friday are encouraged that the Senate will follow their lead and block FERC and that President Obama will sign the bill into law.” [MidHudson News, 7/11/14]

Times Herald Record: Local DC lawmakers push for rollback of new energy zone. “U.S. Reps. Sean Patrick Maloney, D-Cold Spring, and Chris Gibson, R-Kinderhook have pushed legislation through the House of Representatives that could roll back the unpopular new electricity pricing zone the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission imposed on the Hudson Valley.” [Times Herald Record, 7/12/14]

Roll Call: Maloney Won Standoff to Pass Amendment. “Rep. Sean Patrick Maloney, D-N.Y., won a similar standoff after bashing the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission over a decision to set aside a separate capacity market in New York […] It is just one narrow order, Maloney countered, joined by fellow New York stater Republican Chris Gibson. The two seemingly convinced Simpson – the voice vote was awarded to the ayes without challenge and the amendment was adopted.” [Roll Call, 7/11/14]

Journal News: House approves halt to new FERC capacity zone. “Hudson Valley businesses and homeowners who began paying higher electric rates in May could get a reprieve […]The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission would be forced to eliminate a new capacity zone with higher wholesale electric rates in the Hudson Valley under a measure approved by the House Thursday.” [Journal News, 7/11/14]

WAMC:  House Passes Legislation Curtailing FERC Enforcement Of Capacity Zone. “The House of Representatives has passed an amendment put forth by two New York congressmen who want to rein in the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission and undo a new capacity zone. The joint amendment is from Hudson Valley Congressmen Chris Gibson and Sean Patrick Maloney. Gibson, a Republican, and Maloney, a Democrat, say the House passed the Fiscal Year 2015 Energy and Water Appropriations Bill by a vote of 253-170. That bill includes Gibson’s and Maloney’s joint amendment to prohibit the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission from implementing, administering, or enforcing the new capacity zone.” [WAMC, 7/11/14]

Poughkeepsie Journal: Congress Should Back Maloney’s “Bipartisan Effort.” “U.S. Reps. Chris Gibson, R-Kinderhook, and Sean Patrick Maloney, D-Cold Springs, have sponsored legislation that would block the new zone rate hikes […] Congress should back this bipartisan effort. [Poughkeepsie Journal, 5/15/14]

Times Herald Record: Maloney bill seeks to block electricity price hike. “U.S. Rep. Sean Patrick Maloney, D-Cold Spring, is bearing down on the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission and its approval of a zone that will hike electricity bills in the region by 3 to 10 percent. On Thursday, Maloney introduced a bill that blocks the new pricing zone, which is scheduled to go into effect in May.” [Times Herald Record, 3/29/14]

Hayworth Claims No Legislative Accomplishments…Literally!

Newburgh, NY -  While Sean Patrick Maloney (NY-18) has passed 13 bills through the House of Representatives including three signed into law, Tea Party Congresswoman Nan Hayworth apparently has no legislative highlights to tell her Hudson Valley neighbors. Take a look for yourself: http://nanhayworth.com/about-nan/legislative-highlights/ 

 ”Sean worked across the aisle to pass thirteen bills to invest in our infrastructure, grow our local economy, and cut wait times for veterans while Tea Party Congresswoman Nan Hayworth literally has a blank page of accomplishments,” said Stephanie Formas, spokeswoman for Sean Patrick Maloney. “When Tea Party Congresswoman Hayworth went to Washington, she focused on privatizing Social Security, cutting taxes for multimillionaires like herself, and defunding Planned Parenthood – it’s not surprising she didn’t get results for the Hudson Valley.”  

Unlike Tea Party Congresswoman Hayworth, Sean has worked across the aisle to pass 13 bills. Three bills have been signed into law including The Red Tape Reduction Act to lower wait times for disabled veterans, the Dam Safety Act to improve our infrastructure and a bill to improve our farmers’ crop insurance as part of the bipartisan Farm Bill. He’s also passed ten bills on issues like reducing energy costs, support for the Highland Falls school district and curbing human trafficking in the Hudson Valley. Next week, the Transportation and Infrastructure Committee is expected to pass his legislation to improve rail safety by investing in the installation of positive train control. 

Maloney Releases First Ad

Republicans and Democrats Commend Maloney’s Record of Results 

Newburgh, NY – Joined by both Democrats and Republicans, Representative Sean Patrick Maloney (NY-18) kicked off his campaign for Congress against Tea Party Congresswoman Nan Hayworth. Neighbors on both sides of the aisle commended Maloney for working with both parties to get results for veterans, seniors, businesses and middle-class families.

Jobs and the Economy

As a former business owner who created jobs, Sean knows how to grow the economy and put people back to work. He was a top adviser to President Clinton during the longest economic expansion in history and has fought to keep local manufacturing – and hundreds of jobs – in the Hudson Valley. Sean believes American manufacturing is the key to growing the economy, which is why he helped introduce the Made in America Act to spur local industries and provide job training for 21st-century workers.
