Claudia Tenney (R-NY), candidate for Congress in New York’s 22nd Congressional District, has signed the Taxpayer Protection Pledge to the American People. The Pledge is a written commitment to the constituents of the 22nd Congressional District and the American people to oppose higher taxes. Tenney is running to replace Rep. Richard Hanna, who is retiring at the end of his current term.

Tenney currently serves as the State Assemblywoman for the 101st District of New York. As a state legislator, she has been consistently ranked as one of the most conservative members of the State Assembly. In addition to her work as a legislator, Ms. Tenney is also an attorney and small business owner.

“The American people are tired of the tax-and-spend policies coming from Washington and they are looking for solutions that create jobs, cut government spending, and get the economy going again. Signing the Pledge is the first step in that process.”

The Taxpayer Protection Pledge has been offered to every candidate for federal office since 1986. In the 114th Congress, 218 Congressmen and 48 Senators have signed the Pledge.

“We are ecstatic about Tenney’s commitment to the taxpayers of New York. I challenge all candidates for New York’s 22nd Congressional district to make the same commitment to taxpayers by signing the Taxpayer Protection Pledge today,” continued Norquist.

Claudia Tenney joins Steven Wells and George Phillips as the three Republican candidates in the New York 22nd District to sign the pledge. The primary is set for 6/28.
